for use in the course on (raaenglnea. 
The class in machinery is overhauling 
and patting in working order n old

Iu spiteof the bad season the orchard 
has produced a line crop. The Mcintosh 
and Baldwins have been exceptionally 


The old Owen orchard, in which the 
class of Tl started ihe renovating work, 
yielded a crop which has received espec- 
ial comment. 

Owing to the lahoi situation the de- 
partment has been reduced to a fore- 
man and one other man. All other work 
has been done by whatever labor was 
available, Much work has been done 
by children and women. The faculty 
holies have showed a commendable 

spirit by turning out in goodly numbers 
and aiding in the harvesting. One of 
the star pickers has been Uev. Paul 
Jefferson, pastor of the llaptist church. 
The class in Pomology 77 has bean 
proving Conclusively thai lh« conserva- 
tion of food requirements will bold

Team Made Up of Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, and Specials Opens 
Football Season with Clean Cut Victory. 




Appointed on National Educational 

In a game that was tnirked by clean, 
h:inl football the upperelassraen de- 
feated the freshmen by a wore of 184. 
The game was very creditable to both 
■ ■•am- when the lack of coaching and 
practice in considered. 

Neither teams were made up of the 
bent material as the members of ibe 
8. A, T. C. are not allowed to play foot- 
ball. The game was surely a contest 
between the physically unlit and the 
l»oyn who were not yet of draft age. 

The coaching was done by students, 
Wood *19 had charge of ihe fresh no M 
and Park hurst coached the upperelaaa- 
men. The game was in the nature of a 
class content and some of the fight and 
feeling that marked these games in the 
' noticeable.

Thomas, tte diminutive Uppercl 
man captain, won the toss and elected 
to receive the klckoff, Cotton kicked

tracks. Tbe upperelaasmeB at once

eight yards.

fee bail ever Park buret's head 

tbe next piny and the ball wan re* 

covered by tbe freshmen. 

This wan the freshman's first chance 
to lake the offensive but they met with 
little or no success, dun to Harvey and 
Wood in opposing Hue. The freshmen 
were held for down* and the ball went 
to their opponents. On the first play 
.smith made a pretty end run for first 
down. Tbe next four plays failed to 
net the npperelnsamon any gain and the 
ball panned to the freshmen. 

The freshmen ngaJn tried the line 
with no hotter smwta*, chiefly doe to 
the fine work of II. Kimball, and they 
were again forced to punt. 

Cotton punted to Parkhurst wbo after 
fumbling the ball picked It up and ran 
4<> yards through the entire freshman 
team for the Hrst score of the game. 
Tbe last 10 yards be fonod the going 
quite hard as Mnrdock was trying to »* 
Heve him of hfs shirt, Murdoch failed, 
however, and Parkhurst crossed lb* 
line fully clothed. 

Then H.Kimball was called to kick 
the goal, Which be did, making the 
M-o re 7-U in favor of the uppcrelassmen, 

Thi freshmen elected to receive the 
kickoff and II. Kimball booted the ball 

to m unlock wbo was at onee downed by 
I the dashing Parkhurst. After etvenl 
plays tbe freshmen were again forced 
to punt. The kick was blocked and the 
ball finally found its way into Spring's

the part of the students, but it has al- 
ready been found thai there is a ureal 
eagerness for it. Army officers are be- 
coming more and more convinced that 
the influence of this sort of education 
makes decidedly for effect henes* of the 
lighting man because it makes clearer 
and clearer the reasons for their heinu 
In France. 

Perhaps the larger aspect of the work 
of ibe cotumission will be to make a 
plan for an even more comprehensive 
scheme of educational work tor the 
American soldiers in France between 
the time when lighting ceases and the 
hoy* embark for home, Of course the 
soldiers will all be looking toward Am- 
erlen jtisi a* they are now looking tow- 
ard Berlin, Consequently the education 
should direct jtaelf toward helping them 
get ready for their work and life when 
they are back again. work

the econom ic and social problems of the 
days of recount ruction and in general 
the <|!iestionn »f k«hmI citizenship, inter-

on mum have a very large part, N'ot 
only must the rank and tile be provided 
for, but also the men of college grade.

OB the commission will be of course In 
the agricultural field. Inasmuch as at

of the soldier* are farmers and ■ good

Goethe when high though! ami action 
swayed the people. 

The kaiser, he likened to Macbeth, 
overweening ambition, and the begin- 
ning of his degeneration, hit final re- 
sort to murder and the vilest crime*, 
and then his death. 

These two great contrasting forces in 
the world today, he spoke of in this 
way: "There have been, from earliest 
times, two kinds of progress, one of 
them force, and the survival of the 

fittest. This progress In Its entirety no 
democratic people can uphold, for their 

ideal lias been the very antithesis. 

the other form of progress, the devel- 
opineiii ol the individual. The differ- 
ence bet ween I hese I Wo iol'ccs is t he dil- 
lerenee between selfishness ami im-el 

Ii>l ss and unselfishness has been 

man's ideal throughout lime. Domi- 
nant force can only be physical and 
mechanical. Opposing this ideal is 
culture, not Kiillur. Mathcw Arnold 
has said, 'culture is the achievement 
Ol sweetness and light in the relation 
oi man to man.' This Is true progress 
which is Striving for a better point of 
view, an umlcisiamlintf of ot bent feel* 
lags, a reaching toward a greater tin- 
seliishness and l he graces ol civilization. 
It is the impulse which makes us un- 
shackle slave-., and ihai which makes 
us rule in art. literaiuie and music It 
Is the desire for human brotherhood. 

"In this war ws have an exhibition of 
these two kinds of progress matched 
against each other. Our ideals have 
been growing different from Ger- 
many's ever sinee we were colonies, our 
Ideals of business, science, etc. We now 
stand at the point of dawn of the night 
of fear which has been over France for 
more than lifty h-.u«. 

**The spirit risiuu' in the people in Italy 
and many Kuropean countries, the spirit 
here In America, is that of the new 
broad democracy. This Is shown bj 
our willing payment of *U billions of 
dollars to the government, and by the 
the hemic deeds and sacrifices of our 
men. A spiriua I elation pervades the 
country ami our democracy assumes a 
new worth. All past wars have been 
trade offi. A great victory is coming 
■eon, and what will we do? We will 
say no to a material victory, because 
ibis is to be a victory of ideal, a spirit- 
ual victory. Our president has a won- 
derful Opportunity In this near victory. 

"fff will leach l he 'unholy* alliance 

a new doctrine, a new idea, the right of 
the individual man and woman, ami 
that the government most rest on the 
consent of the governed. 

"In the knowledge of how the world 
needs us let us accept that knowledge 
in full reeounilioii of what We may do, 

"Democracy la a religion as J nine* 
ltussell Lowell said ; 'We can send our 
bit to make this dream of democracy 
come true.* (Mir Kuropean monarchs, 
in the past have said, *1(e publics are no 
longer fashionable,'* But today they 
seem to be most popular. And mon- 
archs are not so very fashionable just 
now while republics are growing rap- 
idly fashionable every day,"

"Joshua Nubbins" was a recent 
visitor to the campus. 

At a meeting of the sophomore class 
held Wednesday, Oct. 16, in the old 
chapel, an election of officers was held. 
Owing to the fact that there are so few 
in the class it was deemed wise to elect 
only two officers— a class captain aud a 
secret a ry-treasurer. Marry Nixon was 
elected class captain and Sarah Good-

It may seem Incredible thai lbs above

Nevertheless, it is true. And what 

makes it all ihe more unbelievable is 
t lie fact that two of the most resperled 

residents of Amherst did tin- shooting.

attacked the 8. a.t. C. men si the in

In short, the S. A. T. c. men were

Pleasant, Tbe seriousness of that situ- 
ation and the utter uu preparedness of 
the college to cope with such calamities, 
prompted the legislature to appropriate 
115,000 for sn infirmary. This amount 
was not enough to build a large building 
so the two small wards, one to lie used 
for contagious amm, were erected teni.

The Dormitory System? 

\i the tn»t asaeiubl] of this college 
year it vu announced that all male 
students would !•«• reiiiiired to live in 
Maternity houses which, after bclnjj 
taken over by I he college, were to re- 
place the dormitories thai are now 
taken by the S. A.T, C It was also 
stated; that If any of the students had 
adequate excuse* or If they bad made a 
previous agreement w it li the owners or 
occupants of rooming houses, I hey 
wuuld not be required to live In the 
I rat e nil t y house*. 

Today there areftl male students on 
the roll id the college, and only 14 are 
rooming in fraternity houses. What 
baa become of the other SO? True, there 
are stuue that are janitors of the college 
and other buildings, but the greater 
portion of these men are rimming in 
private booses am! tint even working 
fur their lodging, Is it possible that all 
of these men have agreement, with the 
owner* or occupants of their rooming 
houses ' Yes it is possible but not 
probable. The chum-en are that some 
i the landladies, out erf their owe 
fertile brains, have manufactured agree- 
ment-. This ban been done in the pa* l 
and ht probably being done now. It U 
therefore the duty of the college hi l*»ok 
into the validity of iboee ao-called 
agreement a and nee haw many are gen- 
uliie aad haw many are not. Surely 
the men that have no genuine agree 
went should 1m furred to Jive in the 
fraternity houses, 

\« the situation stands at the prese nt 
time the dormitory system is an auto* 
lute failure, The college is not the 
gainer; and sorely the fraternities are 
are not the gainers, because so few men 
are living in the fraternity houses thai 
the (mhn) will not be sufficient to pay 
the running expenses of the houses that

The first freshman social took place 
Saturday evening, Oct. 19, at the Pbi 
Sigma Kappa fraternity house. The 
objects of the meeting were to become 
better acquainted with one another and 
to become more familiar with the col- 
lege songs. Refreshments, consisting 
of cider, doughnuts and toasted marsh- 
mallows were served by the social Com- 
mittee. The serving of refreshments 
was followed by dancing. The affair 
was so successful that undoubtedly more 
socials will be run off during the year. 



Aggie has grown so much during the 
last few years that the facilities for 
heating and lighting all the building! 

have become inadequate, It has 1 n 

found necessary to spend several thous- 
and dollars lor Improvement! ami addi- 
tions lo the heating plant. One new 
boiler has I u installed but ; * not 

quite ready to operate. Two features 

oi this will be an am ntle stoker and

bought toi the coal handling apparatus 

and it is hoped that it will be here soon.

The college has agreed to stand by the 
fraternities and, np to a certain point, 
has done so. U would seem however to 
the casual observer that the dormitory 
system was not being enforced, 

Mituetent room Mttl remains in the 
houses to accommodate ibe feat of the 
mate students. This space mnst be 
used if the dormitory system is to sue- 



Within the short period of less than 
three months the war has claimed four 
Aggie boys. Three of these men were 
in France, and the other one would 
probably bare gone over soon.

This is just a note, because it is quite 
late and I have to go on patrol tomorrow 
morning. I went up today in formation 
with three of our fellows (my tirst trip), 
but we didn't run across any Huns. Vuii 
can bel I kept tuy eyes open today. A 
Hun sneaked up behind one of our boys 
today, and if the patrol leader hadn't 
spotted him just in time and taken after 
him, the -27th would have lost a pilot. 

Campbell (the "ace") was wounded to- 
day, but got his Hun. I'm dippy v% it li 
the prospect of going up again tomor- 
row and hooting Boche Danes. It's the 
greatest spori in tin* world. Every- 
thing's line and dandy In our new home 
and I'm absolutely topnotch in health 
and spirits. Will write later. 

Things are going on nicely for all con- 
eernedexcept the Kaiser, and I honestly 
expect to be at the openiug of college 
next fall. 

The regiment I am with is the cream 
of Illinois, and I feel mighty lucky to be 
with such a line hunch. They are a 
National Quafd mil lit . 

Well, I must say that I am see tog 
quite a bit ami also learning a bit, so 
expect to receive something from my 
experiences. I met Abe Strauss the

rows of chairs filled with students and 

the Professor sitting In his usual place, 

he saw rows of black iron cota arranged 

neatly along two of the walls. The loom 
was a very picture oi tidiness and order- 
liness; the beds coveted with blue army 
blankets were all made up, the Hoots 
were swept so clean that not a speck of 
dirt was* to be seen, there seemed to be

On the steps, however, he nut an in- 
dividual wbo was about to cuter. 'I'.n 
dou me. sir," said the regular student, 
(you notice thai he said "sir" because 
tin individual had a very military ap-

in-; markedly and ii watt only a q uest ion 
of time before tbe little end would have 
had to call time out in order to cateh 

lliH I ilc Mill. 

The rest of the half was marked by 
very even play and the ball was in the 
middle of tbe Held when time was called. 


During the Intermission, the fresh- 
man cheering section, consisting of 
three girls and four fellows, cheered 
lustily for tbeir team. Perhaps it was 
the cheering, perhaps it was the rest 
that improved tbe freshman team, but 
they started in tbe second half to tear 
up the upperclassmeu in great shape. 

Captain Thomas after carefully la* 
tpeetfag Herman decided that that indi- 
vidual had fully recovered, so be was 
reinstated in the game for tbe second 

Kimball kicked oil to Harwell who 
ran tbe ball back for ten yards. Tbe 
next play Llarvey was off side and the 
ball was advanced for live yards. The 
freshmen then began another attack at 
Hie seniors' line with little effect. 
After the fourth play II Kimball called 
time out in order to liud what was the 
trouble with tali thumb which bad 

h«a oa a very peculiar angle. It was 
ly decided that said thumb wasdis- 
»u\»»ted. The difficulty was quickly 
remedied and tbe play was resumed, 
much to tbe disgust of the upperclaas- 
iii.' ii who were feeling the effect of tbe 
tobacco out a little. 

Finally tbe ball was wrested from tbe 

freshmen ; and the seniors tried to make 

1 wn tbe field, but they had 

their playing and were on- 

.ke any noticeable gains so 

the ball passed to tbe freshmen. 

As tbe play progressed Uefcree 
Ulan, hard discovered that Harvey bad 
a bad habit of forceably relaiuing Mc 
«. mini, *.o i he upperelaanmen were pen- 
alized 15 yarda for holding. This was a 
gnat help to the freshmen and wilb tbe 
addition of a few more yards that were 
netted by straight football they were In 
easy striking distance of tbeir goal. 

Clark called for a forward pass which 
was thrown by Field to Farwell who 
made a pretty cateh and crossed the 
line for a touchdown. The try for goal 
was blocked and tbe score stood 18-6, 
favor of the upperclassmeu. No more 
scoring was done so the score was lH-ti 
at the close uf tbe game. 

For the upperclassmen Park hurst was 
without doubt the star, bis brilliant 
carrying of the ball was responsible for 
both of their touchdowns, and bis de- 
fensive work was of very high quality. 
Both Wood and Harvey played their 
positious very well, and Kimball, with 
his six feet live inches, was able to stop 
any attacks that the freshmen made on 
his side of the line. 

Cotton was tbe star for tbe freshmen. 
He played hard and well ail through 
the game and it was due to his brilliant 
line plunging that tbe freshmen were 
able to get within striking distance of 
tbe goal. Clark at quarterback might 
have? made a little better selection of 
his plays but on the whole he did very 
well, llolman played a very creditable 
game in tbe line; it was due largely lo 
bis good work (hat the upperclassmeu 
were unable to gain through the left

Carlton and Lyons Make Spectacular 

Finish. Aggie Places First 

Six Men. 

On Oct. 9, the M. A. C. S. A. T. C. 
Cross Country team won a decisive 
victory over the Springfield S. A. T. C. 
by placing tbe first six, the ninth ami 
twelfth men. Tbe Aggie men finished 
in very good shape, while most of the 
Springfield men showed tbe effect <>l 
tbe four and a half mile grind. 

The course over wbich tbe race was 
ran was one of tbe most difficult courses 
In New England as a greater part was 
np bill and over rough ground. 

At tbe crack of (be starter's pistol 
Lyons took tbe Ira. I which he bald 
throughout the entire race. After the 
first mile it was not difficult to foraee 
the result of the race. An the runners 
struck the first bill there were six Aggie 
men in a group, all running easily; 
while tbe Springfield men were strung 
oat la a long line and all man seemed to 
b« t abort ng bard. Lyons and Carlton, 
especially, were running with a grace- 
ful and easy stride. About a half an 
hour after the start of the race six of 
the runners appeared on the home 
stretch and as they approached if was 
seen that they ware all Aggie men. 
At a quarter of a mile from the tlnUh 
tbe runners opened up. Some could 
net bold the pace and were forced to 
drop behind. Lyons and Carlton, how- 
aver, were fighting it out for first place. 
They cams across tbe field shoulder to 
shoulder. At the hundred yard mark 
Lyon* exerted himself to tbe utmost 
and gratually patted away from Carlton 
crossing the tape five yarda In the lead. 
The mat of the Aggie runners with tbe 
exception of Perkins and Peterson came 
la soon after; all seemed in the beat of 
condition and none of them were towed 
at any time. 

Mntwa and Mansfield were the first 
Springfield men to crow tbe 
ftey finished seventh and eighth re- 
spectively these awn seemed to have 
plenty of reserve aa they wan able to 
■take a fine sprint at tbe end.

Speaks at Assembly Oct. 30. Urges 
Men to Return to College. 

on Wednesday, Oat, :so, the s. A.T.c. 
and the regular student* assembled in 
the auditorium. For ten minutes the 
rookies entertainer! themselves and tin* 
others with numerous popular songs aad 

college songs. The " Wcducsdav .Soup" 

song provoked not a little laughter. 

President lluttei ii.lil used the hour to 
tell us a little mora of bis petal of view 

in the present crisis, ami lo explain 
more fully the nut ure of liis work in 
France. He referred to the way in 
which we were criticised for out seem- 
ingly premature rejoicing that Sunday 
morning when the news came that the 
kaiser had al>.l mated sod that tierrnauy 
"would accept our terms." For his own 
part, the president feels that that was 
significant news. It represented the 
tenting point In tbe war. The A meii- 
can conscious mind begins to see the 
beginning of tbe and, but it is still in 
1 In mood In use all the BSTgy and force 
and arms available to win the war. 
Am» uea Is determined lo win the war, 
and she cannot let anything crowd out 
these purposes, 

Regarding the college— > he realises, 
with us, that this is no longer a college 
In tbe old sense. It Is now a military 
camp and its chief object Is to help in 
preparing men to get Into the game, 
lie recognises an effort here to have 
things dune in (be light spirit and ef- 
fectively, lie impressed the fact that 
we are still looking toward IterHii, 
Some of us may think we could devise 
better plans than the government d..e», 
in some Instances, but this Is no time 
for personal or Institutional ambition. 
There should be no 'yellow regret ' or 
manifestation of a *doB*i«care* attitude. 
The men here and everywhere through- 
out the country most do the thing as* 
signed— whether In the line of private 
or somewhere else. Older men can only 
look on and wish the younger aasM god- 

"I'reay"* urged every man to look 
ahead and plan for tbe future, tie 
thinks that Ust average man whose col- 
lege course has been interrupted should 
break down every barrier that would 
tend to keep birn fimn returning lo col- 
lege, He believes that the experiences 
of this period of Interruption will count 
for tbe •making of the boy," The over- 
seas life of (he life in the training 
camps here, will mean growth and ma* 
Inrify to the buy, 

President Bulterfteld emphasises the 
fact that the next few yews will bring 
the need for great men— men "wbo are 
ready for the new day.** In closing, 
'*l*T»xy** said, "I count It It be a privi-

M. A. C. Expects to Go Way Over Quota. 

The conference of all Massachusetts 
state colleges and private secondary 
schools, held at Jacob Sleeper Hall in 
Boston, on Sunday afternoon, in the in- 
teresl of the I'nited War Work Cam- 
paign, pfOVed t<» be oaa Of deep interest 
and inspiration, Seventy-two colleges 
ami sell. mis were represented ; Welle.

Ml. Ilolyokc College all h,i\ in» delcga- 
tiotis ranging from five to ten. 
M. A, c, was represented by a com. 

mlttee of five — Mr. Greene from the 
la.iilsy Mi Kiel.!, i from the V. M.< . A., 
Mr uppc from Company ll. Mr, Hale 
from Company A, and Mr. I'elrson from 
the regular It adnata. 

Methods of conducting the local cam- 
paigns, plans of oi Liam/at ion , etc., were 
discussed, lit Stearns speaking lot 
the men's colleges and f chooll and Miss 
Weisel. executive secretary for Mass. 
for flic Untied War Work Campaign for 
the women's colleges and sohaots . 

Tbe climax of the conference was 
reached la tbe stirring address, at the 
close, by Brewer Kddy, Those who 
have beard Mr. Kddy know of his mag- 
netism and wonderful forcefulness. 
His address was a wonderful impetus to 
all present to give themselves heart and 
soul to I hi" ureal movement of giving, 
and to tire others through then en- 
thusiasm to do the same, Ashe recited 
incident and incident of the splendid 
courage and fortitude and indomitable 
spirit id our men at the front, on tbe 
high seas and in the air, and showed 
that only through tbe giving of our- 
selves and our gifts could we claim 
partnership with these men who are 
giving all, even to Ibe supreme sacri- 
fice, one realised afresh how small cipii 
the greatest is, compared to what they 
are giving. Mr, Kddy's second point 
was that we stum Id give because of the 
victory that is being given to us who 
have not yet been asked to pay the full 
price With no thought of sacrilege, 
he spoke id ibnsa men overseas a* ver- 
liable Cbrists, giving their lives for 
a great cause, llow dare we t hen even 
look upon the world's cross and awful 
suffering without giving to tie utmostf 

Many think that because victory to so 
eminent this great gift of «lTa.ftUU,tlMJ, 
the greatest single gift the world has 
ever Iteeri asked to give lo its feliow- 
inen, may not lie needed now, lint there 
will be a great let down when peats 
is Anally declared and there Is no longer 
the iiupetii* and stimulus of slighting 
objective, and the gravest danger to our 
men will come in the react Win and in 
the long hour* of leisure aad enforced 
idleness, for it will lake months to re 

turn our two million ami more of men 
to ibis country. Hecausc these men In 
seivice will be the vital, dominating 
force of \ met ieau life, the future moral 
and spiritual life of America will de- 
pend upon these months ahead, mouths

Emphasizes Difference Between Pan- 
Altraism and Pan-Americanism. 

On Sunday morning, Nov. 10th in 
ehapel the Hav. Df, Jonathan 11. Day, 
moderator uf t he National Council of 
CangregatloaaJlstn gave as a true Ameri- 
oaa message. He realizes tbat the men 
of If, A. 0. are nol largely men from 
t ;i i ms <>r iiifii who intend to go into 
strictly agricultural work. lie finds 
men in training for vocational effort 
and be thinks that here they are get- 
ting the general training that they feel 
jh necessary. 

The speaker Introduced his message 
with I lie clauses from the twelfth chap- 
ter of Genesis, from the second and 
third verses: "I will make of thee a 
great nation, and in thee shall all the 
nations ol the earth lie Messed." This 
text contains the greatest idea of Pan- 
naiionalistn that has ever been miu- 
geeted to the world Pan-Mlavism was 
an attempt to bring all the Slavs under 
Slavic rule ultimately to gain lee-free 
ports ami a lice way through the Bos- 
phorus,- all to l>e ruled by the dynasty 
ami thus to have a share in the world 
affairs ami to gel out into the sunlight. 

I'an-tiermanisin was the unifying of 

nil the German stock. It moat be aworld 

power or downfall. The great military 
machine and the marvelous system ol 
education worked in co-partnership for 
national y realties* and national domi- 

I'an- \mcrlcan. on the other hand, 
was far from meaning national domi- 
nance with all the outward evidence 

It means the 
j „ ,„ ,»,,»uoii, in Usher's "1'an- 
Vmericani*m" the Monroe doctrine did 
not mean the same thing ss his concep- 
tion of Pan*Amertcanlsin, but I admit 
to you that the I'an-Aiiieri. anism of 
today means the protection of the 
weaker people* of this hemisphere. 

It was the little group of men about 
the hay-stack In William* college that 
brought the first gleam of light which 
leads A merles to a greater vision of a 
world -consc! ensues*. It is this Pan- 
American Ideal that makes America re* 
sponsible for the outermost and fur- 

iIih »t and dowunxmt man. It was 

Dwlght I.. Moody** conception of the 
''evangelical ion of the world in this 
ibis geiirraiioii" that makes the Mes- 
sianic ideal in Isaiah It common to ill, 
l*an-nall>inali»tn has romc through the 
religious inspiration and the political 
aspiration of the people. It aspires to 
national greatness In order to influence 
world affairs. In this Influence hi In- 
tended to be a bensfleent, sacrificial, 
unselfish world Influence. The Von- 
llindenbnrg line has proved the ditch 
on either side of which the two kinds 
of pan-nationalism bare fallen, OM 
kind is that of Caesar with the Idea 
implied that the many are created for 
the benefit of the few— the autocratic 
Ideal, The other kind is that of the 
democrat - not of lotdshlp but of ser- 
vice— the ideal of Jesus Christ who said 
"Whosoever would be great among you 
shall be your servant, and whosoever 
would be first among you shall be your 
hand -servant." Where ( sesarism has 
prevailed it has always become a part 
of the religion of the country, and 
win i. the pan-nationalism suggested 
by Christ has prevailed It baa become a 
part of the religion ol the people, 

Dorlng Hty life in Herlin while at- 
tending lectures there it was Von 
Krcitshe who was building the system 

of "Politique," a cult or religion which 
bore the terniB and forms of paganism, 
and embraced the old "Odanism" or 
worship of the gods of war. A few 
days ago Prince Marx, speaking in the 
Reichstag, said "The tragedy of our 
defeat is great, but one thing is true, 
we have won a victory over ourselves, 
in that we have found t hat Might is 
not Kight." 

A world-intluence at its maximum 
cannot be achieved by any nation or 
any individual until it accepts as the 
principle of life those ideals that were 
taught in Nazareth by the son of the 
humble carpenter. A nation can never 
be stronger than its leaders. 

Which shall Pan-Americanism be? 
Shall it be Pan-Imperialism or Pan- 
Altruism '.' The most perilous thing 
tbat America faces now is its inevita- 
ble tendency to sway back from the 
political radicalism that has brought us 
into the war. The danger is that we 
may swing back again to the individ- 
ualistic selfish ideal where lordship and 
not service predominates. How will 
Americanism be altruism and not im- 
perialism'.' To use terms which we 
may think of as slang phraseB hut in 
reality— true Greek phrases— America 
is "up against it." It is "up to you" 
men to see that A merica goes "over the 
top," We must let ourselves see far 
enough ahead to think of the recon- 
struction days that are coming after the 
war, We must determine whether 
America shall be true to her democratic 

Hisforyoin leadership to see that 
it is made possible "to see beyond the 

What do you men live by.' What It 
there that is Important in human life? 
I »i . Cabot has told us that man lives by 
work, play, love and worship. You 
are here not simply to train for military 
training, hut to train for good citizen- 
ship, and a good citizen must be fitted 
for good leadership In his community. 
If yon fall down now because of laziness 
or carelessness or because the people 
who would be a mighty influence Id 
your training have let their lives be- 
come Germanized — then God help you ! 
There never waa a more solemn moment 
in the life of man than now. 

You arc here to learn to play. One 
of the finest things in the camps all 
■long the coast U the way In which the 
"Y" ha* taught men to play. Play is a 
divine function of human life. Train 
yourselves to (each men to play. Take 
t hat idea Into your home life, into your 
community life, into your church life, 
tee to It thai the play instinct gets into 
its proper relation with religion. Don't 
be afraid to kiek over the institution* 
that have been formed by the devil. 

\'rc hen to learn to love. Friend- 
ships formed la t his period will mean 
something new and fine borne Into your 
life. Friendship should be baaed on 
the sharing of the common princi- 
ple- tbat make for the beat society. 
Keep yourselves pure In heart, clean 
in life, true to the religion of your 
home and church, to that finally to 
your own home you may bring a pure 
life— a life that has an unspotted past. 
I .earn to worsh >p No education cm 
afford to leave out religion* training. 
By religion* training I do not mean see- 
tartan Ideals. Gvd forbid tbat in such 
a place as this. I refer rather to the 
"essential religion" where the Inspira- 
tion and the purpose la one like the 
Hebrew Menorah — the pure gold can- 
dlestick which seemingly has seven 
separate parts but which in reality is 

one .deriving its lustre from one common 
fount of oil. 

It is you men who will have to go out 

to give leadership to American life — 
to make Americanism truly ullruism— 
for He has promised us "I will make of 
thee a great nation, and]in thee. shall all 
the nations of the earth be blessed."

T. M. 0. A. Prove* too Fast for 

The Springfield ft. A.T. C. defeated 
the Massachusetts Agrieullnial College 
8. A. T. C. by 4-1 in the first soccer 
football frame that lias been on I lie M. 
A. C. campus in years. 

The game was we'l played by both 
teams. Though soccer is a fast game, 
It failed to hold tue interest of the 
spectators, however, who were used in 
the faster and more ragged American 

Springfield kicked off, but Aggie 
quickly recovered the ball and drove it 
down into Springlield's territory and 
held it there for the first five uiiuuies, 
on a pass, BodrUjOSi received the ball 
and carried it the entire length of the 
field and passed it to Clegy who kicked 
the ball past Woodward for the first 
scon- of the game. 

Aggie then kicked off, bin Sprinutiehl 
recovered rapidly and held the ball 
down in their opponent's termors until 
Clegy scored another goal. 

Aggie kicked oil again and Spring- 
field at once recovered the ball and 
kept it down in Aggie's territory until 
the third score of the game wan wade. 
This goal resulted from a cornel kick 
that bounced off Martin's bead into tin- 

For the fourth time Aggie kicked off 
and was able to keep the ball SWS] 
from her goal for the remainder of tin- 

In the second half Aggie substituted 
[lelahuul for Ward and Springfield 
substituted Burr for Livingstone. 

Aggie kicked off at the start of the 
second half but ws« unable to keep the 
ball away from her goal and on a paw 
from Kodricjues Korea aoored. 

After this Aggie showed a little life 
and held the ball well down In Spring- 
field'* territory. On a pasi from Sied- 
man, Sampson scored the tir-i and only 
goal for the home team. 

Springfield kicked off and Ihe play for 
the rest of the half was very even, no 
more scoring being don* by either aide. 

For soccer the game waa fait and well 
played, bat locoer can never hope to 
take the place of American football In 
the hearts of Aggie men. 

Ths stars of the game were Rodrlqaes 
and Clegy for Springfield sod Sam peon, 
Stedman and Delabunl for Aggie.

The time was slow, a little more than 
thirty-one minutes. This was probably 
due to the tad that the \ggie runnel, 
were not forced to extend themselves at 
any time. 

The men who stood out in ibis race 
were Lyons, Carlton and Casein, All ol 
these ran a tine race, all seemed to 
have enough in reserve so that, it forced 
they could have cut down the running 
time greatly. 

T men credit cannot be given 

Coach Dickinson, who has had charge 
of the Aggie runners for the last few 
weeks. It is largely due to his careful 
coaching and training that Aggie ni 
the race by such a largo margin in favor 
of Aggie.

Excitement and Enthusiasm Reign 

Amherst was "all afire" for I lie third

time, however, the peace new* received 
was i In- real thing, ami wan celebrated 
the next ilay l>y a inixeil military ami 

eiviiian parade, which was followed by 

a general "shin-mast" aroiiml a big 
bonfire on the town common, ami songs 
and firework*. 

The parade, wbieh started at 2-30 P. M., 
was led by four mounted men, promi- 
nent eitlisens of Amherst, followed by 
the well known Amheist I. ami. Then 
came tbe military division ot the parade 
beaded by the Aggie Jv AT. C BBlt

In a column of squads and presented a

At a meeting o( the regular students 
after assembly, last Wednesday, it was 
decided to support Ifctf year's athletics 
by means of a tax M the entire stmieut

money paid by former men am athletics 
this year without at least some sappotl 
from the present memliers of t he college.

Again, has Aggie shown her loyalty 
to n mail cause, and in ■ manner well 
belitting her past responses. Again, Ag- 
gie has not only done her duly, bill hat 
gone beyond. At one of the tii*t ■Mat- 
lags of the War Work Campaign com- 
mittee, the allotments for the two Col- 
leges ami the tOWO of Ambers! were de- 
rided upon. The town's onola. includ- 
ing the two oolleges, was fixed at ♦!<!- 
IHK), Of this. M. A. C. was asked to 
raise S4IHKI. The 4ggU representatives 
immediately protested at t lie small allot- 
ment this college was asked to meet. 
Tbe quota was then made *5<kiu, but even 
at this some felt it was too small. It 
was, hovvi'ver, a lair tbaTC "! il" 1 town s 
total allotment, and wild the feeling 
that we would exceed the qttOtS bj H 
per cent, it was aec«'pt«'d. 

A delinite orgaid^.ai ion had already 
heen started lor colleetlng the Hinds 
I'lic college was divided into its natural 
gruupa, each group being represented 
by at least one member on the central 
committee. The B. A I < was repre-

The laeully, ttie men students, t lie

representative. It was decided to com- 
plete i Iu « -ampalgn In two days instead 
uf letting it ilrag out over tbe entire 
week, as has been ibe rustom. 

Monday evening the students were 
addressed by a lepresenlalive from tbe

gards to the war the Irishman said: 
"Its a hell of a war, hut it is better than 

no<iia|» at all." No of the minor 

horrors ol the war. as tar as the French 
are concerned.^ the awful way the 
Americana ami "Tummies" ahnse the 
French language. 

Mr. Kinlii-y's work t.iok him lirsl to

This war work is not »f the ant na-

Hon. It's original purpose m» broad 
program of philanthropic endeavor for 
public health and medical r duration 
"To promo te wett-belntfof man through-

who are voiiuis mI inbercubt. ■ 


The college llhrary has recently re- 
ceived from Ihe biudery what is prob- 
ahl.v the most unusual and unique set 
of hooks in its collection. It is a set of 
four volumns containing the Thurher- 
Woolson Collection of Botanical Maim 
scripts. These letters were the properly 
of the late Doctor Qeorge Thurher, who 
died in lHiiti, ami at his death was left lo 
Harry Thurher Woolson, who gave 
I hem to the college as a memorial to 
Ihe class of 1*71. 

Ceorue Thurher, naturalist, explorer. 
editor and author, was horn at t'rovi- 
nence. It. I., .September S, 1881, and 
died at Passaic, N. J., April 1, IWMj. Af- 
ter taking a course in a private school 
he lieeame interested in pharmacy and 
went into the drug husiness. He was 
always fond of hot any and became as- 
sociated with Drs, Torrey, (Jray ami 
others. In 1MP>0 he was appointed hola- 
uisl to the rniled States and Mexican 
houmlars survey and for four years was 
actively engaged along the Mexican 
horder, during whieh period he did 
some very notable botanical work, in 
recognition of which Ihe genus Thur- 
huria, a group of grasses, was dedicated 
to Mr. Thurher hy llentham. After his 
Mexican eiperienee Mr. Thurher ac- 
cap ted a position with Dr. Torrey in the 
fulled Slates assay ollice in Sew York 
and was lecturer in hoiany at the New 
York college of pharmacy and in Cooper 
Union. He was Inter I'mfessor id Ihil- 
hm\ a: ihe Michigan Agricultural Col- 
lege, preceding Dr. \V. J Ileal who 
taught therefor forty yaara and is now 
living In Amherst. Later on FJoctOt 
Thtirbcr accepted the jNtsiton as Kditor 
ol the Am-r'f'iiii Aiirhulhirixt, which 
position be held for twenty -one years. 

During this wide and varied ex per- 
iiMiee Doctor Thurher came In loweh 
with many interesting and prominein 
lietiple and his corroRpoudem-e was of 
a very interesting character. The col- 
lection of 1047 letters, clippings, phoio- 
garphs and eiigravings from -tMi pgflum

others of equal note arc represented in 

the eollei tion. 

Mr. t.eorge c. Woolson of the claw of 
IrfJI. now living In Tryon, North Cart»- 
Hun, turned this collection of manu- 
»i t i|ii s and alwtit jtsst volnmes of hooks 
on Horiii ultuie and Agriculture over la

as a whole learned great tensuM, hnl 
(•roups ol Individuals, and the Individ- 
uals theinselrea have (rained ureal 
truths. Ideals which in pre-war time* 
appeareil faJUastteal, have now become 
realities. The man of vision Is no 
longer considered radical, lie now 
has his plane in the world, and it is a 
place of honor. 

In our rush for worldly success *«• 
as Americans, are Inclined to sweep 
«.v> r the fundamental principles nf lite. 
It has been ■eeasswj fn repeatedly r»- 
mind some of us of the principles tor 
which we have been light tag, True, 
we have ijeen alter the kaiser mid his 
moiley crew, but thai Is not all. We 
have been fighting for humanity, We 
have been k'lvlng our all, that out 
brothers acn»»s (he sea nlghl fire In 
peace and security. We have no 
Worldly success to mtin, hut we do h.tve 
• great m u ra l obligation la hnm&nlt* 
which must Im> met, and we havi- met it 
like men. We of I times fail to realize 
the fact that nil men «Io not, and should 
not. ihink alike The war baschanged 
this feeling. We art learning to i< 
■peel the other man** idea*. We have 
fought side by «ide wiih men of all 
types and have learned Hirtspei i I hem. 
A great brotherhood of nation* is appar- 
ently St hand. The weak shall no 
longer be prey for the strung, 1 "he 
rights of alt nations shall he rwpec led. 

The force ami the unity with which 
America went into the world war has 
been a revelation, tot we are a nation of 
nations, itur people are drawn from 
the far corner* of the earth and \et 
they work together as one fact*, fhej 
soon learn (hit America ts ont country, 
juiir country, and my cmiitirv, It doe* 
not belong in the royally. Anierlea be- 
longs ts a great open household, a 
household in which th« stranger 1« wel- 
come. This service in the name id hu- 
manity, in the name of brotherh«w>d 
km iie.'n owe the greatest lesnoM 
America has learned, 

We whom ei re u instances toned to 
remain at home hare also learned our 

lesaon from the great struggle. We 
have learned what ii means to work for 
a ureal ideal. Smiie of us have learned 
what the word sacrilice means, and this 
lesson has been dearlj bought by many. 
Some who have been fortunate enough 

to have been in Ihe army Of navy have 

learned what respect tor others means. 

Some have learned that knowledge is 
essentia! to success. Some have learned 
what work is, others have learned what 
patience means. We have all leariieil 
some lessons bill lessons are soon t't.r- 
uotten unless the knowledge gained is 
put to u>c. 

Let us consider a lew ol these teaaoM 
and apply them to our college work. First 
there is Ihe ureal lesson of lilol hel'lioiul 
ami this lesson has im place In Aggie. 
Again, there is tin- lesson of work, of 
sacrifice, of respeel tot knowledge, 1 
few days aoo th ( . question was asked, 
"Have you noiieeil any slackening up 
ia the work of the S, A. T« C men now 

that peace has been declared '.'" Yes, 
it has been noticed. Men tail to fully 
realise the value of knowledge until 
called upon for it. The courses given 
Ihe S. A, T, C. men have a practical 
application in everj one's life work, 
which is hound to come up sooner or 
later. Let ihere lie no slackening iti

June 14, 1SHM 
Yesterday was a big day with us. 
though a sad one, for we lost one of our 
boys miles back in Germany, This pro- 
tective mission stuff is real work. The 
Huns rarely come over on our side of 
the lines any more, so all our scraps are 
back in Uunland, so far back that its 
difficult, if not impossible, to get a ma- 
chine confirmed after we have shot 
it down. Three of our boys ahot 
Hun planes down in Germany, but 
the infantry observers could not 

confirm 1 1, .mi. because they were far 

away, although ibey heard the battle. 
t haven't run across a real close range 
•crap yet, such as M c" Might struck 
yesterday. They were tent out (only 
four of them) to meet two photography 
machines on their way home from a 
long reconnaiaance. They had the 
time, place, and heights all arranged 
and everything worked out on sched- 
ule - except that when they met the 
photo baefMB they bad a formation 
of nine liana (Albatross Scouts) just 
diving on them. 'AlacArtbur, who was 
leading our little formation of four, 
nailed the Hun leader and downed Aim •, 
Kucker and Clapp each took on a Han 
and they shot them down oat of control 
at least. Hut the last Ibey saw of poo* 
Bill I'lylerbe was spinning down toward 
Germany. V¥e may hear presently that 
be la a prisoner, hut I am afraid tbe 
devils got him, 

This fighting In the air l» fanny Bpw t, 
We go up with about tbe same sensa- 
tions a hunter of lug game must have as 
he eaters a deep forest. When we see a 
Hun or a group of them in the distance, 
we begin to stalk them as If they were 
rabbits or some other mime. We climb 
up Into the ana and prepare to swoop 
down oa them with the sun in their 
eyes. It Is not until you see the thin 
white Hue of the Hubs tracer ballets 
that you realise that it's not a big bird 
yon are hunting, but a human being 
that baa two machine guns as good as 
your own — and then somehow you get 
as mad as ham Hill at the Han for dar- 
ing to really shoot at you, and you for- 
get everything bat the desire to keep 
your sights lined upon his cockpit and 
to keep both your guns barking. It *s a 
little nerve racking, but it is better than 
ereeplng about In trenches and dying 
like rats in a trap, If we have to get It 
finally— and a lot of us will of course — 

we have the consolation of knowing that 
we stuck to our ship to the last. Ii"s 
very simple. You don't have a thing In 
think of but the manicuvriiig of your 
machine, the aiming of your units, fix- 
ing of stoppages, etc. And if you do ii 
better than the Uun — and you have 
good luck— you'll get him, and if you 
don't, he gets you. Well, in a week we 
will be on the most active sector in 
France — as the Major says with great 
glee — "Right la the midst of the big 
show." That means we will be flying 
every day and almost all day. When we 
are not lighting Huns in the air we'll be 
using our guns on them in the trench. », 
It's a real war ami no mistake. This 
shift into the center of the drive means 
one of two things — either we'll come 
through with (lying colors, or we'll go 
the way a few thousand other pilots 
have gone, C'est la guerre ! But if 
we do pull through, it will be the great- 
est opportunity of the whole war for us. 



U'untiriiieil from pin.-.- I] 

campaigns of this kind in which 
are called upon to show their loyalty, 
there were many real sacriliees made. 
As one man stated it, "Sacrifices made, 
not until they hurt, but until they feel 
guild. " These men and women can look 
back upon the campaign with a feeling 
of satisfaction, not that tbey have given 
only, but that they have done their part 
in a great cause. 

I'p to the present writing 4^7200 has 
been pledged and it is believed that 
the i7W0 mark will be reached within 
the next day or two. This means that 
Aggie will have exceeded her quota by 
50 per cent, a record (hat any college or 
group of people may be proud of. 

In many ways the campaign came at an 
unfavorable time. Though i he Fourth I. ib- 
erty I ■■.in Campaign had just beea held, 
yet M A, C. answered the call with the 
heartiest of spirit. The great armistice 
had just been signed and many people, 
with a sigh of relief, bad leaned back 
with the feeling that, "It is over." Yes, 
the war of bloodshed is over, but the 
real work baa just begun. The great 
organisations, which are furuishiug 
homes for our Imys across the sea, are 
needed bow as never before. Tbe ex- 
■■itement of couttict is over and from 
now on much of the work will lie mere 
drudgery, The very make-up of a man 
demands recreation in which (he pent- 
up spirit can be let oat, and If Is to t hese 
organisations to which we have just 
gives that the task falls upon. 


The class of 19W held its third class 
meeting on Nov. IB, Mr, Faber spoke to 
the class in an effort to gel the boys oat 
for albletfcs, especially for football. He 
said, in part that the Freshmen class Is 
the sole representative of "Aggie" on 
the athletic field, this year, and that it 
ts up to this class to uphold the honor

g £ lerica Now in the World, and Not 

J?- Living for Itself. 


Ten years ago the churches of Am- 
herst felt that there should be more of 
ehurch consciousness and in order to 
further this decision Charles Stetson 
was appointed to carry on tbe great 
work. As the importance of t bis phase 
of church life became more apparent 
the various organizations each appointed 
there own individual worker and the 
congregational body chose Henry A. 
Atkinson. Mr. Atkinson in bis talk 
at Sunday chapel gave a clear insight 
into tbe scope of bis endeavor, not 
merely to teach tbe liible but more par- 
ticularly its application to present 
world conditions. 

He spoke at length on tbe great vic- 
tory which has just been won and of 
the effect it had upon people through- 
out the world. In New York thousand* 
of people turned out on to Fifth Ave- 
nue to celebrate the signing of the 
Armaetice. Many of the people could 
not understand English and d J B ppad 
their work merly for tbe sake of galuing 
a holiday but every where there was a 
great underlying feeling that the old 
order bad changed. As to what would 
follow, that remained to be worked out. 
Vilctory eame at ajtime when all think- 
ing men eould see nothing bat four 
years of struggle ahead. Tbe British 
felt that the channel ports would prob- 
ably be lest, and tbe French had begun 
to fear for Paris. There was a great 
underlying feeling of fatalism but be- 
hind It all wsa the certainty of Anal 
victory. Inside of three months all 
was changed and there Is only one way 
to account for this great change, and 
that is, that a fight against great moral 
principles is hopeless. The right la 
sure to win In the end. The great moral 
pressors of the American people bad 
just gained sufficient Impetus toehsnge 
tbe tide of Herman thought. 

Washington in bis farewell address 
advised America to "avoid entangling 
alliances," For years Ibis policy was 
followed. Tbe Monroe Doctrine became 
part of our national principle. We only 
wished to be left alone. Brotherhood 
extended only to tbe borders of our 
country. Other nation* were looked 
upon with a certain amount of susfie- 
ion. True we freed the sea of pirates 
and gave Cuba her freedom, but we 
were also the gainers. All this changed 
when America threw herself into tbe 
European conflict . We bad nothing to 
gain but we did have our self respect to 
uphold. America Is now in tbe world 
and Is not living for Itself. 

Sow that we have gained peace the 
great question is how shall we use It ? 
Certainly struggles snob as we have 
just gone through most be made an im- 
possibility in the future. In order to 
do this we must study the underlying 



The following action has been taken by the Faculty : 

In regard to men not previously in college : -That men not previously in col- 
lege who have been in military service or who were or became of military age 
during the fall quarter of 1°1M, be encouraged to enter on (lie work of the fresh 
roan year at the beginning of the second term, provided they have satisfied en- 
trance requirements. 

That the committee recommends to the administration that sufficien t Instruct. 
ors be provided to carry on, during the second ami third terms of Ibis year, the 
courses of the first term in such a way aH to satisfy the work of the lirst term, ex- 
clusive of such subjects as I be committee on course of study may determine. 

Thai tbe military requirements be sal islied before graduation and that the 
excluded subjects be classed as sophomore elective*. 

In regard to men previously in college: Any man who has U in military 

service, or who was liable for military service during the fall term, shall receive 
credit for this term's work, provided he has returned to regular work in the cob 
lege by the beginning of the second term. 

In regard to S. A. T. <'. men In regular standing a« college students: Be it 
resolved, that rieshmen who have satisfied regular college entrance credits, and 
sophomores, juniors, and seniors now in the & A. 1 . 0. course*, who are in good, 
regular standing according to the Registrar"* retards, be given college credit for 
the work of (he fall term upon the satisfactory eomplet I..11 of the work of the tall 

In regard to 8. A, T. 0. men not in regulai standing- as college students: lb 
it further icsohed, that ,s. A. T. C. men who remain in college alter Ibis lerui and 
Who cannot at the present time satisfy the entrance requirements, shall be given 
college credit f«»r Ihe subjects taken In the fall term whenever they shall have 
completely satisfied the entrance requirements of the college. 


Campus Takes on the Aspect of " The 
Deserted Village." 

That Thanksgiving Day was by no 
means forgotten by the lioys of M. A. C 
was evidenced by the general exodus of 
students on last Wednesday, Reventy- 
tive or eighty per cent of the S. A. T. C, 
men got passes for the day, and nearly 
all the regular students, especially ibe 
freshmen, t«Mik advantage ol the oppor- 
tunity to see"tbe folks." Tbe few that 
remained because of the great distance 
of their homes from Amherst were well 
provided for at the various eating 
places here In town. In fact, dessert 
wan actnaliy refused by some. Several 
members 0* the faculty entertained stu- 
dents at their homes, 

As in past years, tbe trains eame info 
Amherst nearly empty and went out 
full to overflowing. AI«o, as in past 
years, each man went In to tbe festive 
board nearly empty and came out full 
t-i overflowing. In many cases ii was 
necessary for them to walk, or even 
ehop wood In order to relieve that dis- 
agreeable feeling that comes from over- 
eating. In a few instances the men 
were unable to participate In either ol 
tbese outdoor sport*, and were force*! to 
resort to thai most popular of I ndo o r 

sports, sleep. Oh well, why worry 
when Thanksgiving comes but once a 

A gun rack has been placed in every 
room of tie barracks, so that every 
man may have Ms rifle at band. This 
permits them to put in odd minutes 
cleaning up for inspection without the 
necessity of getting them from the

Victor* Have Little Trouble in Roll- 
ing up Big Score. 

By a score of 48-0 Deerfield Academy 
defeated the M. A. C. freshmen on 
Alumni Field Nov. 21. The winuing 
team outplayed the freshmen in every 
department of the game and at no time 
were they in any danger of being scored 

After the first few plays it was not 
difficult to see l be outcome of the game ; 
the only question was how great a score 
Deerfield could roll up. 

The freshmen kicked off and were 
able to hold the ball in Deerfield's ter- 
ritory for about five minutes. Soon the 
visitors began to work in real earnest 
and by straight line plunging they car- 
ried the ball over for the first touch- 
down, (lapp then kicked the goal. 
This seemed to take the life out of the 
freshmen and Deerfield was able to 
gain at will. The freshmen line that 
held so well in the previous game of- 
fered little or no resistance to (he Deer- 
field backs, and tbe ends were unable 
to stop the hank attacks. In the first 
half, Deerfield scored four touchdowns 
and kicked four goals, making the 
total 2* u. 

The second half wan very much the 
same as tbe first. The freshmen were 
no match for their opjK.ncnts who 
scored three more touchdowns. 

The freshmen can be complimented 
on the fact that, though oiu-weighe.l 
and out-played, they foughi to the last 
play. They did not know the game as 
well as their oppon e nts did and they 
did not have the experience and the 
practice that Is so necessary for every 
successful football team. 

Cotton, Murdock and llolman Were 
the bright spots in the work of the 
freshman team. These men, espec- 
ially Cotton, played a very creditable 
game, both .... the defense and on tbe 

The work of the entire Deerfield team 
was remarkable. The team played a* a 
man, so perfect was the team work. 
The big scorers were Williams and 
«'lapp. Williams deserves much credit 
because of tbe good judgment be 
showed in selecting the plays.

S. A. T. C. NOTES 

The addition of several new wash 
bowls in North College basement and 
showers in French Hall may be a bit 
late for the S. A. T. C, but they will be 
permanent improvements. 

Varsity basketball practice is being 
held Tuesdays and Thursdays from live 
to six and on Mondays and Wednesdays 
from four to six. The practice is for 
the non-S. A. T. C. men as well as for 
the S. A.T. C. men. It is hoped that 
many men from both groups will report. 

The Massachusetts Collegian, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 1918. 


At the present time there are forty men 
in the squad. The squad will be cut 
every practice until but 12 men remain, 
and from this 12 a team will be selected. 
These 12 men will elect the captain. A 
league of eight teams will be made up 
from the culs and these will play a 
series of games. There will be teams 
to represent each of the companies. 
These teams will play an inter-company 
series as well as outside games.

Offers Many Home Comforts for the 
Men of M. A. 0. 

The S. A. T. C. men cannot say too 
much in praise of Secretary Fielder and 
the great organization which he repre- 
sents here at the college. Perhaps the 
ready response to the recent call for 
war work funds may be taken aM Home 
indication of the extent of their 

It is barely a month and a half since 
Mr. Fielder started the work, with tbe 
assistance of Mr. Watts, but the work 
baa been carried on with such vigor and 
Interest that it is firmly established on 
Its own war basis as an indispensable 
part of army life. Tbe first steps taken 
were tbe rearranging of the SoeJal 
Union rooms. A portion of the Trophy 
room was partitioned off for an office, 
tbe remaining part of the room was 
fixed up for a writing room, tbe regular 
"V letterheads and envelopes being 
furnished. The large Social Union 
room is being used as a reading, loung- 
ing and general social gathering place. 
A large selection of magazines and 
papers are kept upon the reading tables, 
and games, such as chess, checkers, 
etc., are furnished, for tbe men, at t to- 
other tables. Equipment for outdoor 
■porta, euch as baseball, foot hall, and 
so<<cr are furnisbed at the office, the 
men signing up fur the equipment at 
tbey take it out, and then are checked 
off as they return them. 

One of tbe most appreciated features 
of the V. M. C. A. work here is the 
moving picture entertainments fur- 
nished every Tuesday and Saturday 
evening. The admission Is free, and 
the pictures, which are ehoaen with 
great foresight, all aid in bringing out 
large audiences. Tbe first picture 
shown Is generally a war film, this be- 
ing followed by a longer feature picture. 
generally full of good hum..! Satur- 
day evenings after the pictures the 
co-eds at tbe Phi Big end Kappa Si k » 
hold open bouse with dancing. 

Another feature Introduced by the 
T, M < A is tbe mending of tbe 8, A. 
T. C, men's clothes by a group of tbe 
faculty ladles under the direction of 
Mr*. Fielder. This work baa proved to 
be of great assistance to ibe men, who 
have hardly bad the time or the inclin- 
ation to sew up the inevitable rips. 
The safety-pin Is a thing of the past 
Id tbe life of the S. A. "§, 0, man bow. 

The T, V, C, A. has bees practically 
the only avenue through wblcb the 
men could come la touch with real col- 
lege life. It baa brought the men to- 
gether during their leisure hours and 
directed their euthusiasm along the 
heat of channels. Now that (be If, A. 
T, C. is about to break up It U hoped by 
many that the college will make mhm 
provision to keep the **Y" aa a perman- 
ent part of Aggie college life. There is 
plenty of work to be done along virions 
lines, sneb as the organtiat ion of Bible 
If classes, entertainments during 
winter, bikes, dance*, etc. 

Mr. Kehso Earaaarva of Tokyo, Japan,

this fall, the college has jiisl been visit-

Of any serious nature seems to he over. 
The sturdinesH of Aggie's sons ha*

thai as a result id the quarantine i rs 
turn wave of illness could be expected, 

ami thai a special nurse had been ic- 

taiued ,n ihe Infirmary in anticipation

The Appeal of the College. 

The following paragraphs are from ihe 
Itttet sent OMt IM the Dean's oltiee 
early Ibis week. They express in con- 
deneed form what the college plans to 
do f..r tbe student* who will return nasi 
term and some nf the reasons that shoiil.l 
be thougbUally eonsidered before ibe 
Htmlctii makes his linal derision. 

' kftet Dc.cmber g] there will be no 
1 LT.Ci bm there will be an M. k.C, 

Ve believe that yon will need M. A. C. 

raome other college; we are sure that 
A. A 0. will need you. We believe that 
yon cannot afford to loae a whole year; 
three moot ha are enough. 

Here Is what the ro liege will do: 

gi« credit toward the degree tor Ihe 
fall tent! permit you to take such pre- 
requisite courses as are absolutely es« 
sential, ellheT eoMurrenlly with ItM 
coiiraea to which they are prerequisi te*, 
or, mjlw those courses; omit certain 
courses of a general character which 
In the estimation of the student and ad- 
viser lie not considered so essential*, 
condense the work of the others so a«. to 
COVe* ■ nearly as puaalble the full year** 
work Io tbe neil two terms; aadby lhe<» 
and other means (intensife *lndy will 
necessarily have to be stressed) make it 
pttMible for the average student to com- 
plate hlS WOr% ■BSCBPfnBjf wlib«»n bur* 
denlng him much II any beyond the m- 
Hon* work of a norinai term, Umber- 
more, If a snftkrterH number of students 
desire It, and If a suffeient nunilier of 
tha teaching corps be available, it hi 
quite likely that the college will offer a 
special or summer term to neat and 
satisfy snob a demand. In every way 
and a! any time the college holds itself 
in readiness to be Of ihe utmost sent.* 
and assistance to all its students daring 
this unusual and important perbnl of 
adjustment and He*Mt*nctM. 

"Thus next June the senior Would 
graduate with his own class: the other 
classmen would complete their respect- 
ive yearn: and every student can be 
abreast of the game when the next <-..l- 
lege year opens, The student would 
still Ire in college, and would have met 
little compared with what he expected 
to lose. Indeed, by the end of his course 
there might l»e little •* '"» difference 
that would be measurable, and il might 

b#> tor it MR be — a plus not a minus 


"If he does not return he will have 
lost a year of time] be will probably 
have spent it for the most part away 
from Intellectual training; be will have 
dropped from his classes; he will bare 
lost the vital contact with the college 
I hat comes largely from continuous res- 
idence; he will have mal more — much 
more— than by these few weeks and 
months of absence; and there is the 
grave danger that his college education 
may come to an end altogether. 

"Regular work will he resinned after 
December 30, as in a normal year. Some 
courses will be offered again that were 
offered la the fall; suiue will come live 
times a week that came three; most, if 
not all. of your major work will be pos- 
sible. If you deetta mure Information, 
write either to the Dean or to your Ma- 
jor Advisor. We hope that you will give 
this very important question most care- 
ful consideration." 

I Should like to add to these wolds 

i lie point that President llmierlield 
wool. I surely emphasize were he pt>- 
■eating the ease to us. indeed, his 
conduct at the present moment brings 
il before IM Wan more forcibly than 
would his words, lie is speeding to* 
war. Is Frame to tell the \ boy 
what the tremendous tank Of reconstruc- 
tion means; What a truly patriotic part 
in il should be; what leadership Ibe 
intelligent man should prepare to as- 
sume; and what education will beneffi 
him for that part ami thai leadership 
If it was the highest torm ol patriotism 
to ru*h into the trenches last year, il is 
the highest i«'im of patriot lain to msii 
to Ibe work of selling the shattered 
world in order today. On Ihe other 
hand, lei us uoi forget if it were foolish 
and fiillle, to enier the trenched without 
preparation last year, it in equally fool- 
ish aiol fuiile io enter this greater task 
without preparation today. We must 
all lake our place and at OBce i we must 
all make the largest and bent euniribu- 
Hnii possible --If we want to gather in 
the full fruits of this war. To take a jolt 
today that someone else can fill as well 
as we and loobey ihe lir*t generous and 
noble impulse that comes to us may be 
very, rer# far from taking our rightful 
place and may make our total eonfribu 
lion | comparatively small one. Ileum- 
■tructlon will mil begin and end In Ittlo: 
Il is a matter of leu, twenty, thirty 
year*, and if we young fellows waul to 
take our rightful place in li we most 
assiduously m*I ourselves to the imme* 
dlate and great t«»k of t horoug h prepn- 

Kor f.»nr years the education of Kag« 
land. France and fiermany has been at 
a atandiMiU. Oxford and Cambridge, 
the great universities of Paris and Her- 
liu have been as graveyards; the boys 
who wonld have l»een there will lover 
i*e there. It will take years for these 
great edncalkmal center* to (urn out the 
leadership for which inn world waits. 
On the other hand, American laatlm- 
Uoii* are " going coaeernii" at lain very 
moment and equipped Io the bill, They 
can furnish the leadership In the quick- 
est possible time thai Russia and Europe, 
as well as America, so much peed . It Is 
a greater opportunity and privilege than 
has eome In eenturles and it should not 
In* missed hy anyone free and able to 
grasp It. I am eert»n< an M. A. • . man

The lack of empty ice-cream boxes 
around the campus buildings is a pleas- 
ing sight, but as to whether it is due to 
cold weather or to personal interest in 
the campus depends upon whether 
the observer is a pessimist or an optimist. 

In answer to the question as to how 
many men would t<t urn to college when 
the S. A. T. C. breaks up, one man re- 
plied, 'The older men who have had 
one year or more here at the college 
will realize what an education means 
and will undoubtedly return, but the 
new men will in many eases fail to see 
Ihe advantages to he gained by entering 
this coining term." 

The statement that an entire term 
has been lost is anything but true. To 

many of the men who were not lortu- 
nale enough to get into the B. \. T. C. 
or some Other branch of military ser. 
vice it looks as if a term had been gained 
for surely the met! could not go through 
three month* Of military discipline 
without gaining g'reat I raining which 
xmII prove invaluable later in life.

principles which cause war. Ili- 
shows tbeee to be four in number. 

In the nrst place a nation must h:.v 
freedom ol expansion. Its people must 
not be discriminated against. All na- 
tions must expand II order to live but 
Ibis expansion must be so governed as 
to protect ihe intearity of other nations. 
In the second place a natbn must 
have free a ccess to raw material. Very 
few nations are self sunt mining and 
must of aeeda call opon others for ex- 
change oi produce and materials. 

In the third place all nations ibonld 
have free access to the sea. America 
might be looked u|sm as league of na- 
lions, and as an example Kansas which 
ii twelve hundred miles from the sea 
might be considered as a nation of itself. 
What would be ih« inevitable result If 
an embargo was put upon all goods 
which she tried Ml export? The in- 
jti.tii e of the embargo Is plain to every- 

In the r.uith place there should be 
ttodbierim nation against a nation. It 
Uonly natural for a man to eowider 
his country as the Weal one, and if 
tariffs are plaeed agafn* g««d» from his 
country the unfairness wubl noi help 
but lie apparent. 

The new structure must l» based 
upon mghleonsneas which exalteth the 
world, upon Jttetiee not charity or eoa. 
% ,nt ton* to hold the lid down. It moat 
be based upon morality, fore JleieBey 
divorced from molality is a devilish 
thing as has just been exemplified by 
Hermany, It must be baaed upon 
Democracy which not only give* one 
opportunities but which de maud* the 
aid of all the people. ITpoo this last 
plan lies the future of America. We 
milM not forget 'ha! the individual baa 
rights which must l»e resided. The 
man who ha« the peMooallty to forge 
ahead, must not lie hindered. There 
must l»e limits to «»ur democracy for 
there le grave dangers of a tyranny far 
worse than any autocracy, as has been 
recently ihnsn la Russia. America baa 
hrlju'd will the war. H la our duty DOW 
to Stand by KM9fM and help unlsngle 
the many snarls left.

In Sunday chapel, Kov. 84th, I>r. 11. 
W. White of Hartford, Conn., gSTS the 
students a very inspiring talk on "Life's 
Expansion." The speaker chose the 
eighteenth verse of Ihe third chapter of 
second Peter as the text for his me** 
sage, "But grow In grace and in the 
knowledge of our Lord and Havlour, 
Jesus Christ. " The proof and the tri- 
umph of life is growth. 

In returning to M. A. C. after several 
years this graduate of 't*l recognises In 
the wonderful expansion of the collage 
ample proof that it hu* had the true life 
principles In its history. It has served 
the needs of the world, and so it as* 
grown. In our personal lives It is tree 
that "all that shall I.,- made, an. I I hat 
■ball endure, -hall be made hy Mini." 

The eternal process ol urowth and de- 
velopment, the culmination to fruition, 
the bursting of the InhhIm to a higher 
degree of power, breaks us sway from 
the fetters thai would keep us wiib*n 
limits. An «dd, famous painter was in- 
specting the work of his pupil. As be 
paused before a picture be rea lined Us 
lack of breadth in its failure to include 
all that it might hsve portrayed, ami he 
wrote beneath It, "Anaplius.'* which 
means tanjrr. Just so in our personal 
experience, ills the Christ that writes 
"ABspllus**on our live*. We MfSf gM 
to the point where we are a tiuUhed 
product, There is ■ pros|i,.| i of eiernal 
growth for those who posse** the* *wrei 
of eternal life. Spri ogtlaae seemi t<> 
us tbe birth of life for nature, bat 
in reality beneath tbe dark and the 
gray of tbe tree and ahrubs all tbat 
growth le concealed sud protected so 
that the whole year, and not spring 
sloae, is the triumph time. 

Man *bould be an eternal triumph of 
growth— growth in grace snd knowl- 
edge, Graee is tbe fitting of oneself to 
perfect relat>onahip* in life— In nature, 
and In the welfare of the body In the 

The physical life la its needs it 
growth is first, then follows the period 
of mental growth. Ureal mmU and 
great thinkers, t hone who grow in grace, 
let tbeir mental growth continue. 
Spiritual growth Is sapteme. The per- 
son who does not realise the poseltiHU) 
of spirit oa I growth is defying Uod and 
denying self. We need the graee which 
Sod alone gives to adjust oimel vc* to 
relatloM with people. If i* poauhbj 
that If we allowed ourselves to be in 
perfect relationship with the t ones of 
nsiore, aa the SaJileaa did, that w« 
would he able to have powers which 
would right fully be our* to control wind 
aad wave and sea, Having grown in 
.grace sad knowledge we came final! i <■- 
the statnre of Christ, Whea we have 
that knowledge which Is boftl of ex* 
perience, tbat knowledge of God and of 
His world and His people we may come 
nearer to that ideal state of eadieM life 
ami eternal growth. 

The Master was able to pe l fo r m woo- 
den with the fickle, capricious, volaiife 
Simon, Thrice he denied Christ, yet 
He made blm "Peter" or rock," hi 
thst la the time of opposition tn Christ 
Peter was able to stand Arm before the 
■oh In Jerusalem. Out of ■«• h rough 
itnff Chrimt finally made the marvelmi* 
life sad character of f he Piter who has 
woo the love snd adttiiiai "<, ..f j.f«.. 
pies throughout tbe eenmne*. 

Greater iharacter, stronger, lirmcr 
Ideals are shown in this growth. With 

it the whole lilc .should take on mure 
noble ami beautiful lines. A terent 
writer has said: "Ho not spend all your 
time in yourself, nor in ymir Friends, 
your work, your church, your town, nor 
your nation." Netting beyond those 
limits means life's expansion. 

America was small In the beginnings 
on the New England shores. The prime 
motive of l he colonists was sellish in | 
that it sought life unhindered and tin-! 
hampered by autocratic management. 

Later the small colonies gWW !<• states ' 

and at length threw ufl tbe old bondage 
in the newfound freedom. 8o Ihe hu- 
man soul has lis period nf expulsive 
revolution when il defies till dletattrti

standing-ground, America wonld have

vicious pirate from the shores of Moroc

would mean to the world. Later la the 
proce-s of her growth and expansion

Well 1 have no idea where you are or 
what you are doing, but it's ten to one 
that you are not doing what I am dolus 
at the present lime: i.e., lying Oa my 
back with my right band bundled op 
just as if it were a winter day, and with 
my right leg in a sling. You see the 
Hocbe got me in the last attack but 
they had to pump a bunch at me to do 
It, for my uniform and equipment 
were completely riddled with bullet 
holes, but he succeeded in giving me 
two real wounds, my right leg and band ; 
although I did get a few minor 0MB 
wounds which are almost well now. 

It is "Finis le guerre" for me for a 
while for It will take several months for 
my leg wound to round into shape again. 
In fact, they are going to ship me back 
to the States because it will take so long 
to put me in condition again, so that I 
can shoot up a few more Huns. 

I haven't been over here very bag 
hut 1 have seen a lot of scrapping while 
1 have been here. 1 don't feel ready to 
go back to the States even yet. bull 
guess I am no good over here or any- 
where else just now, However. 1 don't 
aspect It will be very long. 

Do you remember 11. K. Foster? Be 
was a captain in our regiment and he 
was killed about 100 yards behind me 
just about the time I was wounded on 
Oct, 4, As it happened I was out in

got mine. All kinds of stuff opened up 
on me as 1 bad goltou behind the Bocbe

survey of the city of Ilolyoke with the 
idea of liuding out what agricultural 
products are consumed there, how 
much is produced by the neighboring 
farmers, how much is shipped in from 
other other states, what were the ship- 
ment* of (arm products out of ilolyoke 
that COttld be consumed there, and 
whether or not there are any reship- 
roents Into the ait] of Ilolyoke. 

It is also the purpose of this survey 
to we whether the farmers could not 
produce more food, at a prollt, that the 
city could u*e. 

When the survey is complete a map 
will be produced that will show the Ma*

The Massachusetts Collegian, Wednesday, Dec. 11, 1918. 



The college baa exnreaaed Its opinion 
as in favor uf Installing an 8. O. T. C« 
unit tu take ilic place ol i He s. A. T. C. 
in mililnn training bare at Aggie. 
Because of ibi protlsloH tor eornpalaory 

inilitiiiy training in I In* Land Grant Act 
under wblcb Massachusetts Agfleal- 
tura! College w:im founded, it is oeces- 
sary that sosie form ol military edm-a- 
tiuii. suob as the U. <>. T. <\, be insti- 
tnicl Imi«- ni-M t«'i'm. I' hi probable 
that ihf course will be similar in the 
It. u. T. C, tralMlnf gWan liUlt year, 
witb such modifications a» the present 
situation necessl'ates. Men in tbe 
(>. It. ('., nr any army or navy reserve, 
could nut take such I raining as mem* 
hers of the IS. <>. T. <'., Indeed, it is 
probable that men who have had train 
iim In the service will no4 be required 
to lake the emirs- at all, because their 
work has been so much more intensive 
ami comprehensive iban any they could 

be siiven here. 

Ii is expected that tbe it- <»• '■'• <"• *«* 
St ruction will be substantially as fol- 
lows: For (be Crush man and sophomore 
years the work will be compulsory and 
no subsistence trill be drawn, it will 
include three bean practical work and 
an hoiirof iheoretieal work. The ad- 
vanced course, which will be elective tol 
junior* ami seniors, will probably in- 
clude tliree boor* practical work on the 
drill ground and in ilo- Held, and in ad- 
dition live hours <»l class study. Tbeae 
ailvauced men, who will furnish the 
oilicers and noac4«»« for the unit, will 
draw suliNistencc allolmenls from I he 
Itovernmeut. It h hoped that this sub- 

<Ulenee will be incle;i*ed from W rents, 
drawn bint year, in fto cents a day. The 
government should also provide a Call 
uniform every year to all the men 
under training. Definite anion in re- 
gard to i hift milittirjr tmlulng will be 
taken by the faculty beftfff ilie opening 
of the third leim.

The Massachusetts Collegian, Wednesday, Dec. 11, 1918. 


He Oivas Stirring Address on His 

Kev. Robert Armstrnng, of Northamp- 
ton, addressed a larye audience ol S. A. 
T. C. men in the V. M. C A. rooms 00 
Sunday afternoon, Dee. 1, Mr. Arni- 
StTOQg, who has recently returned (mm 
Y. M. C. A. work with the troops over- 
seas, gave a very graphic and Interest* 
lag account of his experiences on the 
Toul sector and in tbe battle of Chateau 
Thierry. The fad that Mr. Armstrong 
did most of his service with the Mtfa 
Division, made up of men from New 
England, gave added interest to his talk. 

The Toul sector where Mr. Armstrong 
was located was a comparatively quiet 
pnrtinn of the line. The country was 
thickly wooded and furnished many 
mascots for tbe men. 

No part of the address was so stirring 
as the part which covered ibe battle ol 
Chateau Thierry. There hail 1m en 
many rumors flying busily about tbe 
camp. One was to the effect that the 
regimeut wa- going down In Italy to 
help arouse tbe spirit of the Italian 
army. Another had it that I boy were 
going to the Panama Canal Zone to re- 
lieve a body of regulars there, still 
another said they were going to Paris 
to take part in tbe great Fourth of Julv 
celebration. This seemed to he ihe 
best guess, for tbe men, after bet tig 
herded into cattle cars, came into sight 
of tbe Eiffel Tower jusl before the 
Fourth. They were aroused to a high 
pitch nl euthuiasm at tbe pumped of 
the parade and festivities, when sud- 
denly their cattle car* ceased their 
westward course. Tbe engine was 
switched around to the other end nf 
the train, and In a few minutes tbe men 
were going eastward again ou anntto*r 
track, disillusioned and sore witb the 
world. They detrained at Llay (which 
they pronounced Lhuie) and rcgardi-d 
tbe place witb disgust so deep and last- 
ing that tbe roatniiiiiiijal aspiration* nl 
the ladles of that name in New England 
seemed to be set back many years, no 
far as (hat regiment was concerned 
Tbe regiment wis marched further 
toward the front, traveling only In ihe 
night, and Anally in the pitchy dark- 
ness came to a halt in a dense wood. 
After a short time It was dhteovered 
tbal ibey were in the wrong wood, and 
Immediately orders came to get under 
way again. A long detour brought 
them to their proper destination. after 
nearly 14 hoars of marching and almost 
no food, They were very near tbe front, 
and soon were in the midst of the 
terrtiii- struggl e which ushered In tbe 
battle of Chateau Thierry, 

Mr, Armstrong was among tbe Irs! 
who entered that my, and gave a 
splendid testimony to the courage and 
the righting ability of our men, Al- 
though confronted by death a number 
of time*, he himself came through im 
scratched, and soon afterward returned 
to America on a furlough, arriving loaf 
about as tbe arraist ice was signed, 

The address was greatly enjoyed by 
everyone present, and Ibesolaeof Ml«s 
Henrietta Blarkwell contributed very 
largely to tbe pleasure of the afternoon. 


The greater portion of the men that 
the M&asaohueetta Agricultural College 
Battalion of lhe S. A.T. C. sent to the 
inlaniiy officer's school at Camp Lee 
Virginia have obtained l heir discharge*. 

(tut of the lirsi "imip that left tor 
Camp Lee hall have already received 

their discharges, Out of the second 

group that went In Camp Lee but one 

The men that have not obtained tbeir 
discharges may obtain them at any time 
but it is probable that the men that 
base not already been released from tbe 
officer's school will remain and receive 
their commissions Id the reserve corps. 

Of the lirst group the following men 
will finish out the course: 

Faxon. Reatilo, Crawford, Lambert, 

(ialuaha, Sullivan, Sweeney, lllgelow, 
La Croix, Mellen. 

Pice is the nnly Aggie Of the second 
group that will finish tbe course. 

♦*».— Barle Lotbrop and Harry Har- 
rington, both «f whom have been attend- 
ing the Officers'Training Camp at Camp 
l*e, Ta, were on campus over the week- 
end to attend the tabeerinriofl dance 
which was held at tbe **qme House, 


Many of last year's squad have re- 

S. A. T. C. has Rood material. 

\..w that theS. A. T..C. is practically 
a thing of the past and the College will 
be back on the regular basis next term 
tbe interest of all students once more 
turn to Intercollegiate athletics, 

The basketball learn tbal is now prac- 
ticing every nlghl from f-ef to 7-4o will 
be mie that will maintain the high 
standards that the basketball teams of 
i be past have established. A nnmbei 
of the last year's squad have reported 
and it i* Imped that more of Ihe obi 
men will be able to come out when the 
new term begins. 

A number of S. A. T. C men have 
reported and If is hoped that more will 
report for practice as soon as they ob- 
tain their discharges. 

Al the present lime, nwing lo the un- 
certain conditions, there is no regular 
cnach, bill ihe system ol tiore and Dole 
is bclmt followed as closely as possible 
by Park hurst whn is adtug coach. 

A schedule of sixteen games will be 
arranged by Bond 1» who is aeting 
manager, it has been definitely de- 
. ded, however, that there will be two 
games with Amherst and l wo games 
Wilta Springfield. 

Lieutenant ftinningbam deserves 
much credit for the way he is helping 
gat the S, A. T. C. men In shape. It Is 
to be regret l i>d thai he will not have 
the opportunity to Coach the Aggie 
team to play against Wprlnnliebt Y. M. 
C, A, College, bis Alma Mater. 

The men of laat year's squad that 
have reported are," Blaaebard, Har- 
rington. I/othrnp, Williams, White, 
parkhnrsl, Vb-keM, Yeaair, LiltleHeld, 
Irvine. Sutherland, Bowen,

Tbi> college is like «-\.-r\ io-iitiition 
on the tmm of the earth in thai it has 
i.,,t. on a war tiatiU for the last few 
months. AH the old traditions have 
been broken down: all the old mtflM 

bave been relegated to lhe«erap heap. 

All that was unnecessary was iluiie away 
with and the entire energy was turned 
In one thing ibe winning of. the war. 

\..w that the war in over and iheS. \ 
T. C. Is a thing ot the past, the problem 
ihal confront* etretj Vuu'ie man and 
eveO \gg'c worn ■ n is how to gel the 
college back on the normal basis. How 
raiiilo-id.linstituiionsand the obi spiril 
that made this college the hM of its 
kind lw built up.' How may we out of 
Ibe wreck Ihal the WV has made tit I his 
college build up I situ, ini.- thai i« %»r\ 
much the same as the old. but with all 
the good enlarged ami ill that might be 
done awav w.iti. doio- away With once 
and for all t The problem is one ol mm-

thai Uave sprnug up during the war- 
time condition*, th»S, \ I . t . musi.-nl 
ihibs, the Cabinet . Hie ruu.Kitiw 
Board, and (he managers of the athletic 
and non-alhlciic urgauixftiionp. 

Hi,. ,v \ |. r. is n thing of the naul 
and nil Us ln«ii Hit ions should paa» away 

with U, 

There are mime uicinbers of the cob 
lege setMta thai will return te college. 
What ahall we do with them t 

There are some members of the old 
('OI.I.KOIAn lb»ar.l returning. shall

ihe pa i 

Tin-re are managers and a*«lstanl 
managers of the athletic teams and of 
the noii-allilciii club* who will return 
What p..sii!oH will I bete men hold.* 

There are three a*pect« that may be 
taken of these problems. The ft ret as* 
peel i» that the existing Institution* 
should stand for the res! of the rear 
and that the returning soldiers and 
Milon should not have any share in the 
direction of the student avti*ili«. 

The second gaped ii that the present 
institutions should be wrapped, ihrown 
ont, and when I lie new term begins elect 
from the student body a new senate, « 
new ('"! i mii u hoard and tow mana- j 
gen. In taet, * ,llt, lne ncw lerm M lf 1 

i h»- presanl Institutions did not exist. 

The third aspeel, and one that many 
of the business bouses have followed, 
is to consider that the men holding the 
positions during the war were but sub- 
stitute* for the men who have gone la 
war; that when the soldiers and sailors 
return, the present cabinet members, 
the members ol the present CoI.I.koi AN 
board, and the men who are now acting 
as managers should step out and permit 
the returning soldiers and sailors who 
hold those positions before the war to 
assume their old responsibilities. If 
(here are some positions that are not 
claimed for one reason or another, the 
in. .si efficient and best fitted members of 
ihe present organization should be •*• 
lected to lill the vacancies. 

The tirs! aspc.l is rather unjust, and 
it is to be doubted if there are many 
who really believe that such a policy 
should be carried out. 

The second aspect is too radical; it 
would throw student life into a chaotic 
condition l<»r some time, and it would 
do nothing toward eslahlishing the old 
traditions and customs. It is therefore 

The I bird aspeel should be considered. 
II is the object of all to get the college 
back on the old basis as soon as possible. 
Il is nccesMiiy. therefore, to get the 
ideas of the men who were l e ade rs under 
pie- war conditions. This is best done 
by placing I hem in their old posit lone. 

Then, too. these men should receive 
I heir position* back. It is no more than 
right Ihal the men who have ollered 

their very lives in tlii* war should be 
returned their old positions ,.t honor 
and leadership in student activities. 
They were the eh. dee of the student 
body before the war; they should have 
1 1„. positions for which they worked 
now that the war Is over. 

There is this also to consider. There 
are some m embers of t he old instil in ions 
who will not return for some lime, and 
there are some who will never return. 
Who will lill the positions thai they 
leave vacant? In reeogniiion of the 
.ervices that i in- members of the pres- 
ent institutions have rendered they 
should be candidate* for these vacant 

li I* the object of all ol us to get the 
college back on the normal l*«ni«, to 
build up the old traditions a* soon as 
IHHisible. and to give ihe returning sold- 
iers and sailors a fair desl. We should 
therefore do our turnout to see that these 
men are returned to their lormer poai. 
tions of leadership ami honor that they 
,,nee held in student life at Aggie. 


The following are the ' Ten Com- 
mandments '' of BaO. Foch, generalissi- 
mo of the entente forces, for the con- 
duct of the soldiers of ihe allies. 

Keep your eyes and ears ready and 
your mouth in the safety notch, for it 
is your soldierly duty to see and hear 
clearly, but as a rule, you should be 
heard mainly in the sentry challenge or 
i he charging cheer. 

Obey orders first, aud, if still alive, 
kick afterward if you have been wrong- 

Keep your arras and equipment clean 
and in good order; treat your animals 
kindly and fairly and your motor or 
other machine as though il belonged to 
you and was the only one in the world. 
Do not waste your ammunition, your 
gas, your food, your time, m.r your op- 

Never iry to lire an empty gun nor 
lire at an empty trench, but when you 
■boot, shoot to kill, and forget not thai 
at close quarters a bayonet beats a bul- 

Tell the truth squarely, fgee the mu- 
sic, and take your punishment like a 
man; for a good soldier won't He, he 
doesn't sulk and is no squealer. 

lie merciful to the women or your foe 
and shame t hem not for you ate a man ; 
piiv ami shield the children in your 
captured territory, for you were once a 
helpless child. 

Hear in mind that the enemy Is your> and ihe enemy of humanity un 
til be is killed or capliire.l ; then he Is 
your dead brother or your icllow-sold- 
ier beaten or ashamed, whom you 
Should no further humiliate. 

Do your best to keep your head clear 
and cool, your body clean and comforta- 
ble and your feci in good condition, for 
yon think with \ head, tight wlih

Last fall at the beginning of the col-

Now that the college is to return to the

return to the campus leaving the lia- 
teinity bouses for occupancy by their 
respective Iran riiitii -. the other 

houses which have been rooming the 
regular students are also to disgorge 
their unusual occupants and return to 
normal again. Nothing has seemed to 
queer as to bear ditninuative feminine 
voices issuing from the windows whence

getting Immediate discharges, to enable 
the men lo return to college. 

Tbe possibility for rushing and the 
new rules for the coming term were 
definite!) decided upon by the inter- 
fraternity conference at a meeting last 
week Tuesda>, Having detinii« i % de- 
cided at a previous meeting to carry on 

niHhiiig this next term, ii Maslheiiut\ 
of tbe conference toilecldc under what 
general rules the rushing was lo be 

done. Mme the rules of past years 
have worked out so well little m na 
change was made ill the present one- 
wit h the exception of tbe subatltuHon 
of a new rule for tbe eighth. ThW* m ■ 
rule calls for the bidding lo he done 
through the president id the conference 
on a certain date, when all the Free li- 
nen will be asftciu tiled at a designated 
place. The intention of I lie eonlereuee 

in making this change wan to eliminate 
all chances of undue Influence befug 

hrotlglil to hear on any man to pteteu! 

bis pledging tbe fraternity of hi* 
choice In Ihe past many Freshmen, 

iliider pressure, have "shaken," or in 
Other Words ploniised to pledge a lla 

terniiy before the actual pledge date 

arrived, with the result thai he was held 
hy his sense ot honor from pledging 

soon- other fraternity wbicb later ha 
found to be more to bis liking. I to- 
ne w rule eight reads as follows: 

"At 7 p. M. on the fourth Tuesday of 
the second term all Fi est. men shall 
meet at a place designated by tbe 
president of the Interfraternity confer- 
•DM, All bids shall Ire given out by tbe 
president of the conference on a pr»» 
scribed form at this time. N*o other bids 
shall In any way obligate a Freshman. 
N*o pledge button* shall he given oui 
in any other way. No fraternity shall 
try in any wav to hind a Trainman i« 
fore the pledge date I uampied l.ids 
shall be returned to the president of the 
conference on the pre»ert!»cd dnt« 

The ot her rulna were allowed to stand 
aa before with the dates changed to 
make them conform witb the lime and 
length of the rushing season, Follow- 
ing are the rules for the year; 

1, The rushing season shall he open 
for Freshmen n nt II the fourth I ■!•■-., I,,, 
after the opening of the second term of 
college at 7 P, M, Men shall be pledged 
In Assembly on the Wednesday follow- 
ing Ibis Tuesday, 

I, From the first pledge date, as 
mentioned above, no Freshman shall be 
pledged until the second Wednesday 
of the third term. 

ft. FTeshmen may be Initialed as

4, No member of repremenlatlve of 
any fraternity, or oi tits three upper 
classes, shall talk or corn m tin ice re with 
any Freshman after 7 p. m. of the fourth

Headquarters for Aggie Men in 

The American University Union in 
Europe is the result of two movements, 
one in I 'hi is and the other in this coun- 
try, whieh have united to accomplish 
the seme objects, namely, "to meet the 

m-eds of America n university and col- 
lege men and their friends who are in 
Europe tor military or other service in 
the cause uf the Allies, and to serve as a 
bond between the universities of Amer- 
ica and those of Kuropean nations." 

More specifically , the I'nion provide* a 
home or club for American college men 
when on furlough or business in Paris. 
It provides an information bureau, writ- 
inu and newspaper rooms, dlslsg roumg, 
Bleeping accommodations and opportu- 
nities for physical recreation, entertain- 
ments, medical advice, aud many other 
comforts to the college man in a strange 

The headquarters for the Union in 
I'aris is at the Royal Palace Motel, which 
was rented for the period of the war for 
the purpose. This is a comparatively 
new hutel and though small has accom- 
modation* for oue hundred and fifteen 
men in addition to public rooms fur 
leading and social purposes, Each bed' 
room haa running water and, through 
tbe cooperation of the municipal ait* 
thurifies, the Union is allowed to supply 
hot water daily instead of only twice a 
week, which was Ibe usual war allow- 
ance. This, iu itself, is a rare luxury. 
\t the desk is kept a register of all 
\meriean college men, with tbe college 
and class, degree (If any) military rank 
or form of service, home address and 
Kuropean addreaa. A canteen in the 
lobby carries many of the Ameriean 
articles which are so bard to obiain. A 
special purchasing agent attends to 
commissions from the bureaus and from 
Individual members, including men who 
are unable lu visit Paris personally. 

The restaurant hu a high reputation 
and provides a luncheon for Ave francs 
and a dinner lor six franca, iu addition 
to a very moderate prieed i< '■' <> >< ">•<■< 
The pension for three meals is fixed at 
1 1 francs, Mem hers who ore In Paris on 
furlough can secure aecotnnnKlations 
from 1A franca a day upwards, every- 
thing included. These price* are must 
reasonable In view of tbe high cost of 
-upplos in pans, w iieie anthracite eoal 
rwed I* sell for *80 to f70 a ton. To pre- 
vent ! Ippi nit, a fried charge of $10.90 U 
made on every bill, which fa distributed 
among tbe servants, 

Any college can belong to tbla »•> 
paying a membership fee, which is $100 
per ytmg for colleges having an alumni 
body of less than one thousand men. 
Tbe membership fee of lb is college was 
subscribed entirely by ibe ax-rnen as a 
gift to tbe college. Tbe work of raising 
U was done by 0, A. Pefen V7, who Is 
secretary of Ibe Associate Alumni. 

From time io time lists of men regis- 
tering at tbe Union have been sent to 
the college. On these are many familiar 
names of men who have been students 
at college only m short time ago, Re- 
cently a large college banner baa been 
presen ted to the Union, which serves as 
a fond He to all loyal Aggie men. Now 
that i he war Is over and men an pour- 
ing Into Parts M furlough, the Union 
will be more helpful, more appreciated 
than ever. 



There is a word of appreciation that 
needs expression to the 'powers that 
be' for recognising the needs of I he 
women Students for a inalronof their 
own under ibe new re«imeai Draper 
Hall. Hitherto Miss Kennedy aud Miss 
ltiether, dieticians of the college din- 
ing ball, did whatever was in their 
power toward making coed existence 
enjoyable, While their efforts were 
duly appreciated it was recognized I hat 
it was an additional burden for them to 
try to govern the girls and to attend lo 
I heir own work. As 1'iesident Buiter- 
liebi said just before his departure 
'"There is a new day coming for the 
women of M. A. f'."— and this perhaps 
lis the beginning of that day. Mrs. 
liacharach, who has been wiih the girls 
al ibe Pal "Sig House" this last lerm is 
to be matron id' all the girls at Draper 
Hall, The Kast wing of the Hall is to 
be the girl's dormitory, and ibis depart- 
ment is to lie kept entirely separate 
from the dining hall. 


A large number of the men are watch- 
ing wllb keen interest (he gradual ie- 
t ni ii of athletics to the place they 
formerly held hereon the campus. It 
i- pleasing to note thai Ibe machinery 
for the various athletic organizations is 
already well under way. Kach day sees 
a decided improvement in the situa- 
tion. A great deal of credit is due, not 
only to the athletic board, but especially 
to Mr, Dickinson who has worked ban! 
to bring athletics back on to a normal 

The basketball team is fast rounding 
; nlo shape, and with I'arkhursl, blanch- 
aril and White for a nucleus a strong

SHU, if is with the deepest feeling that

The following lit lie jingle has just 
been received from an unclassified stu- 
dent here al the college, and seemed 
well worth printing. It touches npon 
i »ul. jiit that is worthy of much rmi- 
■ (deration, not only al the present but 
at ail times.

i rliics are a common pesf in all gitml 
communities and the college Is no ex- 
ceptlon. We have our critics and. In 
moat cases, they m just as destructive 
here as in any community. It Is inter- 
esting to note who the real college 
critics are, Are they man who are try- 
ing to build up the college, who are try- 
ing to keep alive student aetlv! tits, who, 
in fact, ha*e any license to crifiebwP 
Decidedly no, They are men, and 
sometimes women, who, for f he sake of 
voicing their opinions, and bearing 
themselves talk, destroy that which 
others are trying to build. The real 
worker has no lime for criticism; he bis weakn esses , sod his count- 
ies* errors, liecause be has bad experi- 
ences in trying to build. He sees the 
work as a whole, the critic sees it only 
in part. Both have a purpose, the one 
to build, the other to tear down, It is, 
rare that one Sail a food worker and 
critic combined. 

It would be unjust to say that there 
Is no place for crlf ieism, for II serves a 
purpose when In the faf« of suggestion 
It is folly to tear down when there is 
nothing better to substitute: but that 
is just what criticism does, Ob the 
other hand suggestion not only point* 
.nil the mistake, but at the same lime 
offers a substitute wbereby ibe mistake 
can be corrected. This kind of a criti- 

cism ib not uiily useful but is needed to 
obliterate mistakes. 

Who is he who has the right to criti- 
cise? True, there are few who come 
under this class. The true critic must 
be a man of more than unusual ability. 
He must lie a man of experience, a 
broad minded man, a man with a crea- 
tive purpose, a man with ideas. 


It will seem good to get back on to 
the obi basis. Yes, and it will be fairly 
easy to. Everything i, s lending to gel 
back Into the place it formerly had. 
We are easily satislieil wilb the old 
regime. W» arc afraid to branch out 
for fear we may make mistakes. If 
there ever was a lime when tilings 
should receive a genera! shaking up 
ami over-hauling that time is now 
when things are somewhat unsettled. 
There is an old story of a farmer who 
had a bag of grain to carry from the 
mill to his home. It was too heavy and 
awkward to balance on his shoulder 
so he tilled another bag with stones so 
that ii would approximately equal the 
weight of the bag of grain. He then 
tied the two bags end lo end. picked 
tlirm up and slung them over his 
shoulder so that one bag bung over bis 
back and Ibe other over his chest, 
When asked why he did not empty half 
of the full bag into the empty one in- 
stead of carrying double (he load be re- 
plied, "This is good enough for me, tny 
folks has done it this way for years." 
This is by no means an unusual ex- 
ample for we find the same thing being 
done repeatedly in much of our college 
life. Traditions are a great thing and 
should be kept alive if worthy; but at 
the same time there are many things 
wbieh have not proved successful or 
which have been out grown. This la 
not an invitation for criticism but it is 
an invitation for suggestions, fat ex- 
ample improvements could well be 
made In the rushing rules. In the old 
fashioned "out"* system wbereby a man 
may have 0% taken off from his final 
gtade although his work is up to date 
In all respects, simply because It was 
necessary to take an extra "cut" for 
personal reasons. The same result 
would be obtained if the man was 
obliged to get 40 for a passing grade 
ami he would not lose the mark that he 
bad fairly earned. 

Il lake* initiative to get ooi of old ruts, 
but it I* worth white, for advancement 
Is impossible without it. The appeal 
of "the easiest way" is strong. Ii Is ■ 
human characteristic that is hard to 

stead of the gullet, with the result (hat 
the thing died of water on the lungs. 
However, the loss was not as great as it 
might appear on the surface of things, 
for the victim was immediately stuck, 
bled, picked, drawn and served at the 

hash house " before be knew what 
happened to him.

Men Leaving College at the Bate 
of 40 a Day. 

All the members of the .S. A.T. <'. 
will have left the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College by Tuesday, Dec. 17. 
The men are being demobilized at the 
rate of 40 a day. 

The men have been divided into six 
groups of about 4(1 men each and one 
group is being discharged every day. 
The first two groups are made up of 
men who have applied for early dis- 
charge. The other four groups have 
been picked at random. 

The process of demobilization is 
very simple. One day the men receive 
their physical examination, which Is 
given by au array surgeon, in order to 
determine if they have received any 
physical injury while In service, tin 
the next day the men turn in all their 
equipment lu the quartermaster, sign 
the necessary papers, receive (he pay 
and final discharge papers. The men 
are then civilians, all connections being 
severed with (he army.

The Massachusetts Collegian, Wednesday, Jan. 8, 1919. 




The iiBoessily fur vital Christian service 
applied industrially, agriculturally, and 
in cillicr ways, hat* never l»een more ap- 
parent. In addition to (bene (rroupa the 
Y. M. <J. A. plans to continue the social 
room in North College, the deputation 
Leamt) of previous years, and boy's club 
work in the surrounding towns. 

After these speakers President White 
directed the assembly to t he refreshment 
table, where the "co-eds" held full sway. 
This gave an opportunity for the fresh- 
men and tipper classmen to get acquaint- 
ed in the democratic A(,'|,'ie way. As a 
fllllnjf close for the evcnhur everyone 
joined In si Hiring the Annie songs, end- 
ing with ".Sons of Old Massachusetts." 


Professor Harry V. Ward of Union 
Theological Seminary was the guest at 
Sunday mording chapel. The subject 
of his discussion was " Breadth and 
Brotherhood." We ha\c recently Been 
two disciples leaving ourcountry as mis- 
Mnnaries to Europe, One of these was 
Herbert Hoover, whose purpose it is to 
create some definite arrangement of af- 
faire whereby bread shall be given to all 
people*. The other missionary is Wood- 
row Wilson who seeks to stimulate 
among men the passion of brotherhood, 
and to establish a permanent atmoeiation 
for world-peaee. These men both bear 
the messages of humanity. The one is 
ministering to the physleal hunger of 
men; the other is concerned with the 
spirit ual bnnger of men. The N'azarene 
recognised these two fundamental needs 
of men ; bin la*t prayer had for its t heme 
the ideal that all men should be one — 
bound together la •-»! &»•♦*•»*-* • ' 

ing to find the means for civilization. 

For the first time we have a surplus 
and not a deficit in our produce. ThiH 
is a significant step In the economic 
progress of mankind. Generally Bpeak- 
ing, we have solved the problem of fam- 
ine, but still we know that there are 
among us thousands of hungry, under- 
nourished people. We must admit, then, 
that all the labor of agricultural schools, 
all the labor of men who have worked 
to develop machinery for agriculture 
must fail in its biggest issue until the 
rest of the process of human brother- 
hood has been organized There is not 
much more improvement to be looked 
for in the mechanical side of our in- 
dustry — the improvement now must 
come in relations of human engineering. 

The chief obstacle to a league of broth- 
erhood is the failure to organize. In 
the present war under the Hoover com- 
mission we have organized food work. 
The question of profit has been subordi- 
nated here to the feelingof brotherhood. 
Altruistic idealism must be the founda- 
tion factor of work for the sake of brot h- 
erhood. The wheat loaf of the United 
States has become not only the symbol 
but the fact of national survival in Eu- 
rope. Peace-league work calls for team- 
work as the basis of service. The per- 
manent peace league is not to be a league 
■ if contract, but a league of service. 
Surplus energy must be poured into ser- 
vice, not into conllict. The Ideal of 
peace and reeonst ruction require* hard 
constructive thinking. 

The real brotherhood - the vital rela- 
tionship with God, the brotherhood in 
life work— will bind us all with the 
processes of God's plan for humanity, 
fur the constant will or God is union and 
' iIi.mmI for all the world, 

Hunt on 

the M-ale of the whole world — been at- 
tempted. This endeavor marks the cli- 
max of social advance. Formerly no one 
man could tell lb* exact production of 
wheat in the world. Men could approx- 
imate the a mount of food-stuffs pro- 
duced, but not until the present time 
c.u!. I one give all the data of a given 
production. We can now organize I his 
work of production of the world. Soon 
we may be able to organize all the work 
of humanity. 

The last attainment in social progreaa 
ha* been to establish a system for inter- 
national work. The tiiial attainment 
will Ihi is bind the whole human family 
together rnoperailvely. This dream of 
a peare league is the greatest dream 
ever dreamed. It has ever Iwen man's 
fate to dream in glory and to be defeat- 
ed. If we ask ourwlves what the obsta- 
cle* are which oppose a league of na- 
tions a* the iM'ginniug of a world brnth- 
erhtiod, we find that the hardest thing 
is to try to blend the altogether different 
minds and purp<mes of men. Men find 
that the> ranimt go out Ifl earn their 
bread together in brotherhood ; they 
must come together in their famiHe*. 
churches, schiMds, colleges and clubs 
tor that relationship. The realization 
of the need tot e fficiency makes partial- 
ity or kindnesR impossible. In industry, 
hnbor leaders c o m p e l men to go out and 
take other men's positions. Similarly, 
there is warfare l»etween dealers and 
p toil iicers . as Is evidenced by the pres- 
ent crisis being met by consumer* o 
milk in New York t'tty. There is dis- 
pute about count He* where valuable de- 
posit). i,| Iron ore and (nil ash are found. 
Japan is trying to reach up Into Man- 
churia Mitd ovrr into Korea and into 
f hina for the purpose of developing ibe 
iron ore found theie. Nations are try- 



The annual reanion and banquet of

Professor Pontius, the college ropre-

The association has voted to establish 
a si. o lent Loan Fund, the detalla of 
which are mow being worked out by a

has already been made to this and It la

Bright Forecast For Coming Season. 

Dramatics promise to coma to the fore 
agalu on thin eampoi now that student 
activities Lave heyun to reorganise 
themselves and the calls have gone out 
lor material from the student body, 
hi nee Nicholson 'US has heeu away from 
college, dramatics have not been up to 
standard, only one play having been 
given since then, namely: the "Prom 
■Show" in 1917. The activities along 
these lines have always l.een handled 
by the Hoisler Doisters, the Dramatic 
Society of tiie college, the society hav- 
ing a definite organization and having 
done some splendid work in past years 
until like many other college activities 
it received its fatal blow by the war. 

This year with a large fressnu .lass 
and a comparatively good uumlici of 
upper classmen back in college, the 
possibilities for a good year should be 
vcy bright. Especially among the 
freshman class there should be a large 
number of men who either have had 
previous experience Of are capable o I 
being mouliled into proper form. An 

Informal gathering of a number of men 
interested iu dramatic* which took 
place last week showed that the pro 
peels were guod for the coming season 
Signatures of about thirty-five or forty 
men, mainly from the entering class, 
have been obtained who are desirous 
of trying out for parts in whatever at- 
tractions may be put on this year. Be- 
foie actual work can be started however, 
it will be necessary to place things «m 
an organised working basis. This will 
require the calling of a mooting of all 
men in the entire student body who are 
' re«H»gni ze the Holster 
only one or two of its old 

now on eampns this will 
mean a complete new set ol officers. A i 
an early date, a meeting will be called 
for the purpose of electing officers and 
of drawing up a new cuaslitntlon and 
set of by daws. Ii | a hoped that a large 
oombnrof men will respond. 

forming of groups for the discussion of 
the relationship of the Christian church 
to the problems of world development 
which are now becoming so pressing. 
They are problems which vitally con- 
cern all college men, and which, deal- 
ing as they so largely do with the task 
of provisioning the world, should have 
1 particular interest for the men here 
at Aggie. One hundred ami tifty-six 
students have already signed up for 
t hese discussion groups, which will be 
started next Sunday, if possible. The 
discussions are planned with a view to 
revealing the conditions and needs of 
the world at large ami fostering a spirit 
of world brotherhood and service. 

The co-operation and aid of everyone 
connected with the collage ate greatly 
desired for this work and will be heart- 
ily welcomed. The officers of the Asso- 
ciation are: Asa While, president; 
George Campbell, secretary; and Hall 
Carpenter, treasurer, with Mr. Fielder 
continuing as (ieneral Secretary. 

In regard to patronage, it should 
| prove easy to get the Draper Hall tilled 
to capacity as j,, previous years, pro- 
vided the food and service is satis- 
factory. The social advantages of the 
dining hall, together with its non-profit 
feature, should make it the ideal place 
for Aggie men to eat.

Freedom Of 

Seas An 


We«lm»silav s asseinhl y took the form 
Of AH old muss-meet iu» while I lie stu- 
dent body waited for the arrival of t tic- 
speaker who was delayed in a train 
wreck. Curry llieks nave the fresh- 
men and sophomores some information 
concerning the courses in physical edu- 
cation, and the question of the dining 
hall was up for discussion again. The 
real of the time waa devoted to arousing 
pep for the cominy hasket ball and 
hockey games. 

The speaker, Dr. li. R, lion mis is one 
of the leu or twelve men in this country 
who has really iuvesti»atcd the things 
involved in reconstruction and the prob- 
lems oi peace. Mis was an nut hot itive 
message for lie Is oue of those who has 
worked for the peace league formation. 
His message was the judicial and de- 
liberate remilt of careful study. 

We have all accepted the phrase 
"peace league" but have we accepted 
it all'.' The thing important to us to- 
day iii what kind of a peace Icauuc ol 
nations arc we to have. What is the 
present situation internationally *.' What 
problems are before the peace confer- 
ence? What kind id a peace board is 
adequate and necessary. 1 Is there an\ 
precedent for a peace league' 1 How 
does it concern >oii f 

Kirst, what i* the situation ;» The na- 
tion* of the world are an uuoi «aiii/ed 
society. Now even nation i* depend- 
ent on evetv other nation. There i-. m. 
law governing the nation*. When in- 
ternational laws are outre solemnly bro- 
ken liiey are no loiiuer existant. There 
in no international legislation no in- 
lernational policemen e\i»t: there U

the British Knipite lias got to be im- 
paired if what I bey want is rated down 
by the other nations. The point of in- 
tetest and the point of honor may be 
decided against them. It is intolerable 
that one nation should prevail against 
all others. 'To have tin effective body it 
must be self-sutlicieiit : within certain 
limits it must be all powerful. It must 
have economic power, some limited con- 
trol of marine commerce and interna- 
tional commerce. 

Such a ImmU must naturally be an in- 
ternational league ruling omt produc- 
tion o| raw materials, inanufaci uriny , 
exports and imports, mails, cable*. 
etc. 'This board would have sub-com- 
missions working for different states 
and provinces*. For instance, the Polish 
commission would have suflicient con 
trot over Dnn/.ig BO that Poland could 
get through without tlerniatiy'M usurp- 
ing the control. With Germany, a 
strong impartial commission would de- 
cide how >he should work, what she 
should export and what import, what 
manufacture, tables and mails would 
be shut off ami shipping stopped it she 
violated rule* and continued manufac- 
turing gases and aeroplanes and shells.

No mails were accepted by (he post-

Near the end of March, lo our yreat 
regret, the American Consul at Tillis or- 
dered all Americans out ol (he Cau- 
casus on account of tbe military situa- 
tion, as the Turktt and German* were 
advancing rapidly. Bo we had lo leave 
for Siberia. In Baku we were penned 
up iu a house for three days, with a 
pitched ha I lb* between fhe Armenians 
ami Russians on one side and the 
Moslems on I he other. Finally we bad 
to leave the house in the heal of ihe 
scrap, and a lew hours later the house 
and all our baggage was burned. We 
had Interesting adventures going

say of him : 

"Those of us in the class .d l'.tlu who 
were permitted to know Mr. Holland 
will always remember him as one of the 
• leanest and most honorable men who 
ever attended the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College. He was naturally of 
a quiet and retiring nature and was not 
the sort of a man who looked for col- 
lege honors, l»ui was a thorough Christ- 
ina gentleman, lie tried to live each 
day as be believed his God would have 
him live. He was active in Y. M, < \ 
work and was always ready and Willing 
to lend a hand to any good cause. Old 
Massachusetts never had a more loyal 
sun, and while be bad not ucbteved bus-

c i li'mu of the foiiiiitions in wlii< li 

war has left his country, lie said in 
part: "1 have, little to tail you about 
agriculture. I feel I could learn much 
from him among you who knows least 
about that subject. It was agriculture 
that literally saved the world four and 
a half years ago. That ! s only partly a 
topical remurk— it is a truth thai might 
well b* expresaed at every me e tin g. In 
Auffuat, 1914, the French army did what 
U most difficult for any army i«» do, hut 
which the concensus of public opinion 
said would he particularly difficult lot 
the French army to do. They retreated 
and left more of our soil to the advan- 
cing army. A cboeen moment came, 
when the beads ol the army said, 
K.iiougb! hland now! If you cannoi 
advance, die!' Joffre said that. lie 
did not refer to an abstract principle. 
He appealed to that which i* peculiui \\ 
oura— the passionate iove of our * 
which bu been our lor 
years. The time had eomo for us to de- 
fend our Bt>it. No uation could respond 
to tbe call to defend Mother Karth with 
u much spirit as the French, Von we 
what 1 mean when I say agriculture 
saved the world. The great majority of 
the French are owner* of the land. We 
live on our little hits of laud; we make 
them as beautiful and as productive aa 
is possible. We Intf the land. M> 1*N

was all that could he asked, and the 
forwards came in for a lot of dashing 
spirit, .again and Rgaltl just missing 

baskets hj a ehnni margin, while the 
it .mi work was verj fast and effective. 

The game was lather tough, a large 
number of fouls being called on both 
sides, mostly Ofl account of the strong 
defense exhibited by Aggie against the 
last passing game ..I Williams. Taking 
into consideration the heavier and 
taller team, WiHiains was able to put 

he Moor, Aggie should receive all 

the more credit tot the showing the 
made i n t be st m mg.

though several brilliant long shots were

the many fouls called on Williams, 

Williams got the jump on \ggie at 
tbe whistle and carried Hie ball uuiehly 
to our territory, but met with strong u 
sislsiice from the baeks. Park buret and 
liowdy. The hall was then carried 
back and forth from one goal io lhe 
other as each teams efforts el ■soring 
were strongly contested. The firmf tea 
minutes of plsy were well wprlttkled

technical, however. Afler several si>

goal from the UiM.r. This *w bdloWed 
by one from Burrows, the Williams lei! 
guard, who got away from our tot ■ 
down tbe floor. Smith dropped in an- 
other free try but William* soured 
again, Basket after basket followed 
this for Williams, with only one km*

by Bail, who look Smith's place on the 
free try line, toiwdy had three per-

support by tallying three basket! from

line. The hall was Intercepted so often 
in long passes, however, that neither 
side was able to make very many suc-

was able to do in spite of hard playing 
by the team. (arick turned in four 
free tries and Carsou tallied one Moor 
goal for Williams in this half, but 
strong defense and Home fast work 
when our goal was in danger kept them 
from scoring further.

of the game on fouls. Ulanchard look

Soft lee prevented an auspicious start 
of the 1910 hockey season, Saturday, 
when the Springfield game was called 
at the etui of the (irsl half because of 
the condition of the ice. The Ibaw of 
last week bad made the rink surface 
■oft, and though the game was started 
it was apparent that it could not be real 
hockey. Speed, dribbling, and passing 
were alike almost impossible, and (be 
condition of the ice Imm-»hic worse as I be 
half pr**gre«wed Although the Aggie 
team was able to keep the puck la 
Springfield's territory moat of the lime, 
ibey were unable to soon; and the 
borne defence broke up the opponent's 
attack every time the M, A. C. cage was 
la danger. Captain Chisbolm and Mc- 
Carthy were active in shooting at the 
Springfield goal, and Fink and Markley 
played hard for Springfield, After the 
llmt period the captain and the referee 
conferred and decided to call the game 
because of the lee.

from Motley, made a pretty shot from 

under the basket, This seemed to put 

lite into the freshman, and Hooper 
scored again alter two minutes of play. 
Deerfield then awoke to the fact that 
they were matched against a strong 
team ami tried their hardest to score. 
Time alter time (lark broke up the 
rushes ol Parsons and time after time 
he intercepted the passes of the Deer- 
Bald forwards as they worked the ball 
down the lloor. Alter a few minutes of 

this play, Deerfield broke through the 

freshmen detenee and scored twice 
when Trask and t'lapp each shot a goal 
from the floor. These two goals seem- 
ed to make t he freshman realise their 
danger and thej began to play basket- 
ball in real earnest. They shot four 
goals to Deeriield's one in the remaiu- 
Ing IS minutes of the lirsl half. 

At I he end id I he liist half the score 
stood II to I" In lasor of the freshmen. 

The freshmen opened the second halt 

with a rush. Stevens scored two goals, 
one from the centre ol the lloor, in I he 
iiisi three minutes of play, t'lapp then 

scored a goal for Deerfield. This was 

followed by two goals hy Mosley ; both 

ot them long shots.

longetl rushing season causes many a 
man to form a liasly decision merely to 
(ret a little peace. If, on the other 
band) *he season was to be kepi three 
weeks, parties should be limited to 
three nights a week. It is next to im- 
possible to do any studying during rash- 
log season, and in many cases the lail- 
ure to get the early fundamentals in a 
course may mean final failure. 

Another evil that commonly finds a 
basis in rushing is the practice of look- 
ing for Haws In people. It is no idle 
theory that if one looks for good in a 
man he will always find, it true in some it 
is more apparent than in others, but it 
is there. On the other hand if one is 
looking for weaknesses he will always 
lind them, and when looking for these 
tlaws in a man's makeup he will fail to 
see the good qualities. The outcome of 
this is that a weakness of minor import- 
ance may far overshadow an otherwise 
strong, wholesome character, simply 
because a man can not comprehend two 
things at the same time.

The past rushing season Is one that 
will long be remembered as probably 
the most strenuous one that the fra 
lernilles bave passed ihroiiKh. Not 
only has it been extremely hard on the 
fraternity men but also on the fresh- 
men, who have literally and theoretl* 
cally been rushed from tbe time that 
the first gun wan lired. It has been a 
fight from start to tinUli, All of the 
fraternities have been sadly depleted in 
numbers on account of enlistment* and 
It has devolved upon those who have 
relumed to college to build up the 
chapters. The present freshman class 
is much smaller than those of the last 
four or five years and, as Is always (be 
ease, only a certain percentage of the 
men are considered "fraternity mater* 
ial." This means Ihst »1mmi1 flO men 
must be sorted over ami divided 
amongst the nine fraternities, This 
sounds like a fairly simple proposition, 
but when one considera that there are 
approximately IOC) men doing the sort- 
ing, each wanting bis own way, some of 
the minor difficulties of tbe game be- 
come more apparent. 

The "rushing" game when analysed 
•hows that it is based purely and 
simply upon psychology, ami future in. 
terfraternity rushing rules most he 
based upon this principle lo a greater 
extent than they have been In tbe past. 
All are agreed that the season has been 
at least one week too long. Life is 
short, far loo short, to get everything, 
and a choice most be made, it is the 
duty of every man being rushed to 
choose, and as he chooses lo choose 
only (he best— in friends, in recreation. 
In everything. Ibis choice should not 
be forced, it should come as a natural 
result of meeting and "sleing np" tbe 
men in the different fraternities and the 
fraternities themselves. It is a great 
misfortune for a man to wake up after 
rushing reason is over and And that he 
has been hasty in bis choice, The pro- 

A Challenge. 

With over one hundred students reg- 
istered for the short course and the two 
year courses, they assume a considera- 
ble place in tbe academic life of the in- 
stitution. It is only right tbat they 
should also take a proportion- 
ate part in tbe college life ami activi- 
ties tbat go to make up so much of our 
life here at M. A. C. They have already 
taken a etep in Ibis direction by organ- 
izing social and athletic committees, 
It is hoped that these committees will 
take if upon themselves to enter iuto 
this college work and will acquire a true 
Aggie spirit. It would seem logical 
tbat, with a number such as they have 
to draw from, athletic teams of consid- 
erable ability could be picked. In bas- 
ketball especially, we would like to see 
the short course snd two year men get 
together and put out a team to compete 
in the interclitsu series. Last year they 
made a poor showing in tbe basketball 
scries,but this year.wilb increased num- 
bers, t here is reason to look for a credl- 
table team. Carrying out the line of 
athletics, tbe two year course should 
aUo strive to present a track team a! the 
interelass indoor track meet In tbe 

Tbe future of these short courses, un- 
der the direction of I'rofesm.r I'heian, 
seems even more promising than In the 
past. They are titeosslttg more and 
more popular throughout the state. Am 
their influence becomes more powerful 
it is hoped that they will enter Into and 
enjoy the Institutions of tbe college to 
a greater extent and become true Aggie

Sunday chapel service was a bit dif 
fereut from what we bave experienced 
these last few weeks. Tbe Itev, John 
C. Sycamore of llolyoke chose to speak 

to us on "The spirit ol Christ" rather 
than on international atfairs. His les- 
son was taken from Isaiah, ''The grass 
witlicletb, I be Bower latlelii. bill the 

Word of the Lord endureth forever." 
There is a wide difference of opinion 
among us concerning the origin and 
destiny ol the Christ, but to all of us be 

is the pre-euiineiii character of history. 
His was a life that can but command 

universal tribute. We can analyze bis 
character jus) ae we can regard a beam 

ot light and break it up into its parts. 

separating the varied strands of color 
and tint and shade. The character of 
Jestls was niie of simplicity, serenity, 
and sympathy, There was nothing 
masked or bidden in his lite: be was 
straightforward be was the way, the 
truth, the light. He had nothing com- 
plex in bis make-up: be bad nothing lo 
be ashamed for. He was serene, He

calm serenity, conscious thai he was 
doing the will id the Father, making 
tbe service of a Iwelve-houl da,\ rouni 
for the most. He wa- sympathetic, 
Wherever be lunched men and women

were manifest . 

Applying these principles ol the 
chrisi character to our own lives we 

may well ask ourst-Wes |,iiw II affect a 
other people to meet us. Ale people 
any better, or SUJ mote desirous to be 

better beeauae ihey know us*.* l»oes 
our intliieine make tin in any more 
courageous in take up l heir daily work '.' 
As to simplicity id character, we realize 
that greatness of speech and manner 
are revealed most beaulilully lo us 

when they are simplest. Again, there 

is too much unrest and lack of serenity 
among peoples. We worn In much 
about what people say,— 
"They say. What sa\ they? 
1*1 them say! What does it matter 
w tin! I bey say f" 

We wmi v to much alKitii our health 
ami strength. Buskin said that Bad 
always gi*e* as strength enough and 
sense enough to do the Ihtntj thai is n- 
quired of us 

We worry to much about the fMt'i 
ni iiur work Lei us do what we ran in 
la hours of em It day mid let that stand 
la ciHiiH what it will. 

We want more sympathy among us, 

Syiiipaihv U ihe lifting oneself out ot 

i, ne's own personality of love until some 

one else is made to feel It. 

"Do you know the world is dying, 

Ilu you know tbe world Is sighing for a 

Utile bit of ].ne:'" 

Take Ho lite of Jesus fur a standard. 
Study bis character, read bis life, apply 
his teachings. It will make yon 
stronger ami happier, more courageous

hy war ami one hundred eleven men 
without eyes and anus, one hundred 
Iwenly-lhree without eyes and le«s, and 
live hundred without eyes, arms and leys. 
Kven al that time we had an army hig- 
her than at fany time of mobilization, 
four million four hundred .seventy-live 
thousand men (eoiintiiiK the colonial 
men, whose blood is as red as ours when 
il is a matter of ilefeiulitiK the motber- 
eoiinlry) in arms. 

"One Frenchman commented that the 
mil radii iwiii'il. newly come, newly made 
men from America had proved them- 
selves worthy to be counted with the 
French poilu. The old men of France 
have fought with as much juvenility 
and as much ardor as your own picked 
<i a a » '.I men. 

"I would speak of l he economic aspect. 
At the beginning of the wat our most 
productive industrial parts— the north 
and the northeast— what New Kngland 
means to the United Males— was lost. 
It was a region that of our total re- 
sources had 87 pM cool ol beets for dte- 
tilliiig, 50 per cent ol all I he cotton, «7 
per cent of all ihe coal, and 90 per cent 
of our iron. 

"What would any other count rv have 
done when invaded by an enemy? The 
Invaded torr'lory had four-liflhs lo 
nine-tenths of France's tolal wealth, 
audit was but 7 per cent of l be total 
area. Whai did Frame do .' She iiu- 
provisod war industries, created coal 
Heidi, made mines over night, and, with 
her beat workers at the front, she found 
women, obi men and children, real chil- 
dren, who learned over night . and armed 
France and other nations. America, up 
to a lew weeks ajjo, fought with French 
guog, We do not all understand Hie 
same thing by the 'miracle of France.** 
II may be the fact thai the French na- 
ture, over ha].j.\ itol vivacious, was able 
to become different overnight. Il showed 
in a VSf id bull-doKism and stubborn- 
new that we have a bit of British blood 
In oar veins. The 'miracle of France* 
may be Ihe victory of the Marne. 
Th mug bout our history we have had a 
g«od many Verduns. We know how to 
lire ihe enemy. 

■ \ bout our 'liberty hows,* We have 
■o campaigning, no music and ■peechea. 
A good artist or cartoonist is chosen 
to sketch or pain! effective placards, 
with a few words about ihe necessity 
lor pledging to the support of the coun- 
try. In three years France aubserihed 
10 billion dollars. a little over m billion 
That weans a sBbseripilaH of 
hundred thirty-three dollars per 
capita. Transposed Into your coinage, 
it would mean thirty-seven WlHoa dol- 
lars loaned by y»u u* I'sals Sua, 
" France want* peace and diaarma- 
TbeMnre loanrlea for other na- 
but they are a oeeeaalty for 
franca. We cannot continue to #o 
guarding our frontiers; we have to 
clean up and repair. War has meant 
to you what it means to chivalrous 
i bristlan men. To the enemy it means 
not hint* of the Wmt. It hi «h enterprise 
to liril>« in pwtH. H means annihilation 
of everylhing Hoi Herman. After re 
wwning in Fraaee four and a half yean 
the enemy did no! leave il as he louad 
it. It is absolutely different. Three 
bund red art fifty thouaaod home* have 
tieen ilestroyed, and only half thai MB- 
her have been destroyed for military 
purposes, it was all done Is satisfy the 
vandal purpose and the Huh nature. 
The vandal objected lo beauty, but the 
Hub actt on the principle that *aever 

must anything grow where my horse 
has trod.*- 

"The Hun calls himself the super- 
man. He is not a man. But he is super. 
He has no superior in destruction. He 
has never been rivalled — he's so scien- 
tific he brought streams from big dis- 
tances to drown our mines so that it will 
take fully two years before one single 
ton of coal can be extracted, ten years 
of incessant work before as much can be 
extracted as was customary in 1018, 
Twelve hundred churches have been de- 
stroyed. Orchards are now deserts; 30 
kilos around Verdun looks like a hide- 
ous disease. Machinery has been taken 
away; what couldn't be taken away was 

"France kept Kultur from spreading 
all over the world. The Huns have 
made us full of memories. We will not 
forget. At the peace conference Fiance 
will demand restitution, reparation ami 
guarantees. France does not want in- 
demnity for what was taken away; she 
wants the tools and machinery that was 
taken away. We will not demand money. 
We will impose a new fate on t hat beast of 
Herman territory on the left side of the 
U hi in-. We are not eiudlte. We are 
not dusty in our reasoning. We are not 
forever harping on eternal truths. We 
look al things as they are. Sometime* 
there have been men on this left side of 
the Rhine who have given (heir alleg- 
iance to 'iermany. We do not want Ihe 
left hank of the Rhine, with He three 
approaches to our capital, left for an- 
other invasion. We have suffered 
enough to obtain |>uarantee that (he 
left bank of Ihe Rhine shall not be neu- 
tral, but dclctided. KverylMMly want* 
to be virile and not neutral now. We 
will not ask neutralisation but demili- 
tarization. We shall demand that these 
peoples shall lie made obligatorily peace- 
ful removing everything Prussian. 
There shall be no fortresses, no guns, no 
ammunition, no steel helmets, but plush 
hats made in Oermany, This left bank 
of the Rhine shall be the site of a aew 
Herman civilisation. U may end by 
civilizing and l'hrinlianizin<j Ihe people

college hail closed in April. As Profes- 
sor Robblns says — "None of them have 
been returned." The design for this 
insignia was made by IJaker '18, and 
Gubcr 1!», as the result of a prise con- 

lu fact the non-athletic activities have 
increased from nothing to MO00 worth 
of business in three years time. Ami 
now we can see why Professor Bobbins 
did not feel as tlioimh hu could handle 
it along with his other work. Lawrence 
Dickinson, however, who is to be re- 
tained this year as Acting manager, 
with Professor Bobbins as Consulting 
Manager, is a man well tilted for the 

position. He is a graduate of the Col- 
legs and prominent in athletics especi- 
ally in relay work, having turned mil 
some remarkably good teams in the 
past few years. He has also had con- 
siderable practical experience in man 
agerial work, and has made a good 
record in running athletics in the fall 

in the absence ot 1'iofessor Hicks. He 
is Interested In his new work and will 
undoubtedly have the support of the 
students in this branch of activities.

Sunday afternoon, Uev. 11. C, Ostrom, 
who is acting as traveling secretary of 

the student volunteer movement, spoke 
to i In- students in Bowker auditorium 
• m Japan. Uev. Mr. Ostium has been in 
Japan as a missionary for several years 
aud spoke of his work. He said in 
part: "Japan has a very stratetjic posi- 
tion among the nations of the world to- 
day. There are 67,000,000 people in 
Japan today and they are working in a 
destructive way towards enlarging their 
nation. Iu other words she has copied 
Germany in some ways, although she 
does not realize it. The Japanese art- 
very progressive, but since few of ihem 
are Christians they cannot work for the 
greatest good. The young Japanese 
of the present generation arc being 
trained to the old religion aud must be 
saved in order to make the Japan of 
tomorrow a Christian nation. Nothing 
can save the nation but people who 
have a love for Christ and his life. 
The need for workers is a great one and 
the work is important tor the future of 
the world," 

The talk wai under the auspices ..t 
the Y. M. C. A. which plans to have 
similar talks hy lirst class speakers at 
frequent intervals throughout the rest 
of the college year. The attendance 
i not very large and it is hoped that 
students will become interested In 
the talks hereafter.

two more goals for the Boor. This 
give Aggie a big lead for the time be- 
ing, but time out was called again, 
Kennedy being forced to leave the 
HOOT by his bad condition. Kilby of 
Amherst went in right guard, Snyder 
taking Captain Kennedy's place at right 
forward, Ziuk acting captain. The 
fresh men seemed to install new spirit 
iu the Amherst team and Zink got away 
from our backs again and again, turning 
in three baskets from the lloor and four 
from the foul line, in spite of all our 
men could do to atop him.suffering three 
personal fouls called on as many men. 
McCarthy and l'arkhurst both succeed- 
ed in scoring from the tloor again in the 
last part of the first half, Hmith turning 
in two free tries, but losing one tally on 
account of a technicality of stepping 
over the foul line. When the whistle 
blew for the half Amherst had over- 
come our lead of the early part of the 
game and lead by one point, the score 
standing 14 to 13. 

The second half opened with 
both teams evenly matched in their 
struggle for a lead again. Hall again 
turned in the first basket, for Aggie, 
coring from the Hour alter a few min- 
utes of fast playing, each team gaining 
possession and loosing the ball after 
carrying it up the tloor, in turn, several 
times. Zink scored twice on free tries 
ami followed them with one from the 
floor in i|uick succession giving Am- 
herst the lead after Aggie had wrested 
It away from her at the start of the 
half. Aroused bv H cheers of the

in the scoring for their teams in this 
half, turning in one goal from the floor 
and six from the foul line, and the 
same number of floor goals and four 
free tries, for Aggie and Amherst, re- 
spectively. Suyder scored one goal 
from the floor toward the last pan 
of the half and iu floor work ably Idled

right forward. 

The last U?c minutes of play resem- 
bled the first Ave, in speed anyway, 
bulb teams being very Jealous nf time 
wasted in offside plays, but at the same 
time forced to give a good deal of valua- 
ble time to settlement of individual con-

The mass meeting iu the Drill Hall 
last Friday evening reminded the upper- 
classmen, at least, of similar gatherings 
held in the Old Chapel on nights pre- 
ceding football anil basketball games 
with Tufts or with Springfield. To be 
sure there were BO hymn books to 
throw, or chairs to smash, but the 
crowd certainly made up for this Iobs 
by yelling Hieir heads oft in the cheers 
and songs they were rehearsing for the 
basketball game with Amherst. 

The meeting started with a few songs, 
led by Louis Hastings, after which Paul 
Faxon, president of the Senate, ap- 
pealed to the students to show a better 
spirit toward the visiting teams and 
the supporters. McLeod '20, in a 
st i aighl-from-the-shoulder talk, revealed 
some unpleasant but, nevertheless, true 
facts concerning the life and morale of 
the college. He extorted the men to he 
men, and not idlers ami hoodlums. His 
remarks were followed and supported 
by some from Asa White '19. Captain 
McCarthy then spoke to the gathering 
on the feelings of the players when 
they are fighting their heads off in a 
hard game, and receive no encourage- 
ment from the bleachers. Mae was fol- 
lowed by Coach Hole, who also ad- 
dressed the men on the value of the 
student body backing the team to the 
limit. He said that iwo-thirds of the 
secret of success in athletics lay in the 
loyalty of the rooters, and that the 
other third rested with the players. 

The speeches were Interspersed with 
the rehearsal of cheers under the direc- 
tion of John Yesair. It is only fair to say 
that the crowd responded to the best of 
their ability. Due to the lack of pub- 
licity of the meeting, not all the stu- 
dent* were present, hut it Is expected 
that the next similar gathering will be 
advertised sufficiently, ami far enough 
ahead, to allow no one au ezcuM lot 
not being than.

Where Are the Clubs ? 

lu the pasi (here has been euMideta* 
hie intereit and a pprec i a tion shown in 
the system of club* which has been ret- 
ried on by the studenip. majoriiiir in the 
different departments. The Stockbrtttge 
Club, (he Floriculture Club, and others 
of similar purpose, have been very pop. 
ular at different niwffen of ihefr hUiorv, 
and have even raUMtl eonsiderable riv- 
alry. The Chemistry Club was revived 
last Wed nesday, and now that matting 
la u?er there is every reason i» hope ihai 
the other elnlw, which have been insti- 
tulinns here, should also atari act Ml If* 

The Stock l.n.lue Club, in 1»18, Was 
one of the moat popular Hub* mi the 
cantpu*. The function tit the elnb was 
to stimulate interest and fellowship of 
men ma jorlna In general agriculture and 
kindred maj«»r<t At that lime HipShw-k- 
bridge Club was powerful enough to 
bold a big harJiecue and lieblday, which 
all "10 men will agree wm one ol the 
evenla of their freshman year. Since 
then the Hub has lieeii nn I he decadence 
and finally went out of existence under 
war condition*. 

The Floriculture Club was at It* prime 
in 1B17, when the members published a 
bftoklet explaining the Work of that de- 
partment. Hinne tnim, the Pom Club, 
the Animal Husbandry Huh, the But 
flub, and the Cere}* Francai* have 
thin rf shed. Attendance at 'lie tmm Club 
meet! no* was r really enhanced by the 
serving «f pomolo»th'al d es se r t s. 

Thene «»r«ani «I tana met once a week, 
eommonly on Wednesday evening*, and 
discussed phaneit «f the work tn t heir re- 
spective majors, Frequently, lecture* 
ware given at these meetings by prnfef 
Borsol this Brother i*o]lege«,«ibJ "grade" 
who had obtained valuable Ant hand 
information on the subject, practical 
men whose experiences eefeMl to bal- 
ance the theoretical knowledge obtained 
here al Araie. I n.l» r.i.i«*iFon were in- 
vited to attend these discussion*, which 

proved worth while in aiding Ihem in 
the choice of major subjects, The fac- 
ulty and students also have found these 
groups invaluuble in the past, and we 
hope to sec them flourish in the future. 
It is. after all, the associations, organi- 
zations and activities of Old Aggie which 
stand out in the alumnus* mind long 
after he has forgotten the "trig"' or the 

Freshman Rules. 
This year there have lieen more com- 
plaints of freshman fre/ibne** than ever 
before. This freshness, which is tend- 
ing to undermine the college spirit and 
morale, is due to three things, the 
S. A. T. ('., tlie rushing season, and 
the laxness of the sophomore class in 
enforcing (he freshman rules. 

I!»i2 entered college under unusual 
conditions; in the iirst place, many of 
them were here in the S. A.T. C, where 
they were on terms with the 
sophomores, juniors anil seniors alike. 
Such equality breeds contempt of col- 
lege customs and traditions. In the 
second place, the freshmen have been 
passing through a very unusual rush- 
ing season. They have been treated as 
kings, they have been feasted and in- 
vited around by the fraternities, until 
they have been placed above their sta- 
tion in college life, as they never were 
placed before. In the third place, the 
sophomores, because of lack of organi- 
sation and for fear of arousing the ani- 
mosity of i he freshmen during the rush- 
ing season, failed to enforce the rules. 
They did riot make the freshmen toe the 
mark from the very beginning, and the 
result is that the freshmen are running 
wild, as far as the rules are concerned. 
Numerals are nut being jumped, faculty 
members and seniors are not being sa- 
luted, green bands and freshman hats 
are not being worn, and there is too 
much general freshness displayed by 
the class of 1088. 

What the results of such lack of dis- 
cipline will be Is not difficult to Imag- 
ine, Even now the result* are seen on 
the campus. The eolttgt spirit is prac- 
tically gone, studies are not going aa 
they ahoubl. and the morale, the very 
backbone of the college life, is gone, 
especially among the tower classes. 

It i* true that the freshmen have en- 
tered under unusual conditions, but 
that does not •sense their eonducl in 
tbe least. It Is true (hat the sopho. 
mores lack organisation and that the 
rushing season has dampened their ar- 
dor in enforcing the rnles, but neither 
nor both of these excuse the class of 
1981 in sny way. 

N'ow that the rnshlng season is over 
and the artificial atmosphere has been 
removed from the freshmen, W men 
have been brought lief ore tbe senate for 
disciplinary reasons. These men should 
i>e dealt with as severely a* possible, if 
fur no other reason than to put the 
freshman Haas In it* proper place. 

Much harm has been done to college 
life, which can only be undone by hard 
work on both sides, tbe freshmen obey- 
ing the rule* and the sophomores *n- 
forcing them. This, and (bis alone, can 
restore discipline ami bring tbe college 
spirit and morale back to pre-war eon».

freedom that shone from the torch of 
the Statue of Liberty he darkened 
again. In France and Britain they re- 
joiced that there was an invincible alli- 
ance betWMn them and us. In Bel* 
gium that light of liberty and freedom 
was a ray of hope. In (iermany that 
light meant that behind it there were 
men of force, money, ships, ammuni- 
tion, and a moral sense of right. It was

and liberty shine on ami never be dark-

The speaker at Sunday Chapel was 
Dean Brown of the Yale Divinity School. 
His subject was "The Moral Outcome of 
the War." The war is not yet over: the 
main part of the work of war will be 
done by this present younger genera- 
tion. The moral outcome as it gives 
strength and courage to you has meant 
three things. First, the passing of a 
wicked system founded on belief in the 
divine right of kings. Second, a funda- 
mental HUM in justice. 

For 30 years the kaiser boasted about 
the divine rights of kings, lie §ent one 
and one-quarter million country men to 
their death, and when he was in danger 
be tied, like a thief in the night, to a 
people who received him with little 
feeling id hospitality and safety. The 
downfall of the Romanoff Boaee, the 
House of llopsurg, and the llollenzol- 
lerns-all hated— has marked not 
merely the downfall of a few autocratic 
rulers but the passing of power that 
was lodged in the hands of a few. 

The human race wants right. Tbe 
moral element rose to meet the emer- 
gency when little Belgium accepted 
craeiiixion rather than dishonor. Tbe 
moral element was evident in France 
when In the heroic righting al Verdun 
the Freeeb said 'They shall not pMei" 
The moral tenacity of Britain was one 
of the* determining factors. The Hrit- 
lib Heel swept the seas .,1 hostile craft 
and for four years kept watch for the 
world'* safely. In our country the 
..i.-riiiee has not been tu» great ; but the 
spirit is the uni. Our mora) sense 
baa»hown Iteelf lo be aound in main- 
taining that might does not make right. 
There has been a fresh manifestation 
»f the divine justice Germany failed 
because the God of righteousness and 
justice was against her. That which a 
nation kwi that anal! It ahw reap. He

The lirsi informal dance of the M. A. 

(', social season has been arranged fo 
Saturday. Feb. 1. With the dread quar- 
antine lifted iit last. Smith and ML 
Bolyolte girls arc free to come, and the 
committee expects from 40 to 50 couples 
to trip tbe light fantastic. Tbe dance 
is to be staged in Draper Hall al "LbO 
o'clock, with the music furnished l.y 
the well known Aggie orchestra. A 
steak dinner will be served. 

Due of tbe innovations of this in- 
formal is the plan to have the chaper- 
(Mics bring the girls ovel to Amherst 
and lake them back in a special car, 
thus obviating the necessity and excess 
expense of the men accompanying their 
guests. The chaperoiies will be an- 
nounced at the time of purchasing the

tion for the informal . Friday evening at

Inexpensive Program Arranged. 

The junior class held its fourth class 
meeting of Ihe year, Wednesday, Jan- 
uary i2. Upholding college cuatoui, 
they voted to stage a "I'mtn." 

A brief discussion showed strained 
...millions of the "fat" purse. In view 
of the Index taxes, holdups in the treas- 
urer's office, and gnawing -tart alum. 
tin inexpensive program was much ta- 
vored. The general plan and expense 
out! toed by MeFeod Iroin ihe record* ol 
lb« lWlfl "I'roin** committee will govern 
the aoclal event of ihe year. 

The plan it to have ihe dance the Me* 
"tid week in April, should dlfficnltiet this date will be changed. The 
lioister Dtdsters will probably give their 
tlrst prodnction at "l*roin" time. An 
Aggie production is much pleaaanter to 
ihe "Prom" gtieits and to the ooltege 
iHHly, m a whole, than a prnfeasloitaJ 
|.ro»luction. There waa no "Prom" ihoi 
mi the campus laat year, so euupleii at- 
• iii led Mpringlield and N'orthamptou 
theatre*. The dance will be open lo the 
whole •tudenl body, and It la h..|.ed a 
large number will support it.

topic for discussion at the smoker. 

The plana for the ItlS-il teteaaioii 
Schools have been receatly completed; 
A distinction h*a bet n made this | 
year between 4-day schools and all 
shorter periods of Instruction. A 
course of Instruction given by the Ex- 
tension Service of four or more days 
will henceforth b@ termed ■ 'Common- 
ity Short Course*, while one of I 
shorter period will be called an 'Ex- 
tension School*. 

The purpose oi i Community Short 
Course or an Extension School is to 
assist a community la a study of local 
conditions and to give such help as 
may he feasible in working out a defin- 
ite practical program f. >r the develop- 
meat of the agricultural and home ta« 
tcn-ts of that community, it seeks 
to do this by means of a preliminary 
study of the ooammnit] and i>> mean 
of tei iinii ai Instruction of the local 
men and women. 

One subject grouping for b Commun- 
ity Short Course is mate up Of Dairy- 
ing, Field Crops, Farm Management and 
Home Kcunoniics. Another suggested 
grouping is Fruit Q rowing, Marketing 
Poultry, and Home Economics. Spe- 
cializeii two-day schools are offered in 
Poultry. Fruit Food ,nnl Household 
Management, Field crops. Dairy in 
Shc.p, Milch Qeats, and Market (', ir 
den tag. 

Th ree nay schools in Home Garde* 
lag will be offered In tin cities and 
larger industrial towns of the State 
where there is still a call for this type 
of instruction. Lectures and demon- 
strations will be given afternoon an 1 
• -vcnlng. and the course will be .so ar- 
ranged thai pi i a • abb to attend 
only the evening meeting- will receive 
Instruction in Bm real fundamental*

The Home Economic- D» purine n' of 
the Extension Service Is offering a 
training course in Clothing and Tex- 
tiles, Tills work, li Intended primarily 
for the development «f local leaders In 
i community who arc willing, in turn, 
to in-truct others. Tin* training con- 
aisis of definite project work done in

Legislative Budget, 1018. 

While the country was confronted 
with the sole problem of prosecuting 
the war with all its available resources 
and energy, this institution adopted 
the policy of not pressing for legisla- 
tive appropriations for large construc- 
tion projects. In view of recent mili- 
tary developments, the early need of 
absorbing the labor of our returning 
soldiers, nnd the inevitable increase in 
our student body, especially the In- 
crease of women students, it now 
seems advisable not only to ask for 
the completion of sonic minor projects 
of long standing but also to urge an 
appropriation for the proper accom- 
modation of < ur women students. Ac- 
cordingly, the following requests will 
be made of the Legislature of 1919: 

1. Women's building and equip- 

ment, $160,000 

2. Miscellaneous improvements 

in ubildings and grounds, 
and teaching, operating 
and office equipment, ,ooo 

3. Market-garden field station, 15,000 

Completion or green- 
houses, $4,500 

Administration build- 
ing, 7,500 

Fencing farm area, 2,000 

Irrigation equipment, 1,000 


Following Is a brief explanation of 

the need for the appropriations thu« 

• • ... 

and for miscellaneous teaching, operat- 
ing and office equipment. Inasmuch as 
our requirements are never met by the 
Legislature, the list of improvements 
land equipment presented this year is, 
therefore, somewhat of an accumula- 
tion of needs of long standing. 
Msti-ket-uiirdeii Field Station, #1 :,.»»«. 

The Legislature of 1918 reduced our 
request for construction at the market- 
garden field station by $12,000. Re- 
newing this request we are petitioning 
for $4,500 to complete the greenhouses, 
and $7,500 for the construction of an 
administration building, to provide 
offices, storage for records, a small 
laboratory to take care of the work 
which is to he done immediately on 
the grounds, a committee room, a dark 
room for photographic work, and ac- 
commodations for the heating plant for 
the administration and service build- 
ings and the foreman's cottage. 

In addition, we request an appro- 
priation of $2,000 to fence the farm 
area at the station, and $1,000 to install 
necessary irrigation equipment. 


i ..i, i inn.-. i n mui pa«e 1) 

this work is much more pressing than 
it was a year ago. Women are con- 
tinning to com* to as, and many more 
would cone if we had adequate accom- 
modations for them. Thirteen women 
came in September, and I understand 
that * or 10 of the 40 students who 
are coming to our short course from 
December I to April l are women. The 
past year has tremendously Increased 
the Interest of women In all phases of 
agriculture and the food problem 
With the two-year short course start- 
Ing in fall swing next September we 
shall probably hare close to a hundred 
women students on the crapu, 

How we shall take care of them 
with our present very meager housing 
facilities, it la difficult to say. Already 
we ha« more women than we can ant- 
Isfactorlly house. One thin* it cer- 
tain,— we cannot turn them away; in 
some way we must provide for them 
A new building, therefore, should be 
built at once. It will be impossible 
for us to do anything for them next 
autumn, because It will be at leant an- 
other year before any building will be 
ready to accommodate them. To ask 
tli em to wait two yean would be gross- 
ly unjust to the women, who are press- 
ing to lake advantage of the work that 
the college has to give and which the 
State so much needs. 

1 therefore recommend that we ask 
the legislature this year for as appro- 
priation of $180,000 for a dormitory 
building and equipment which will ac- 
eoromodate from T§ to 100 girls. 
Malleoli-. | Mproi 

thought! or do lofty deads if it is hung- 
ry «»r sick, and the largest nations on 
earth aie both hungry and sick. Christ- 
i nail j, in solving its problem of peace 
on earth, must first solve the very prae- problem of feeding and bealiugtbe 
needy of tbe earth and of educating 
t beiii to assume their own care. Tbe 
■pread of Jeans* principles and the work 
to be done in feeding, healing and edu- 
cating before a large part of tbe world 
rau practise Christianity adequately, 
. task so hard as to call for tbe ut- 
t genuine** ami consecration on the 
of American Christiana. Tbe 
whole matter is a practical problem for 
as here. We must take our share if 
the world is to go forward to real happi- 
ness and peace. If we fail to give the 
beat that we have now, not only will tbe 
world's progress be permanently retard- 
ed, but tbe result* of our selfisbnesii 
certainly will fall upon ourcblldren. 
We Himct itiudy how to do our part 
most effectively. 

These discussions, If heartily entered 
Into, will help in broadening a man's 
vi sio n of tbe condition and needs of tbe 
world and will help to foster a spirit of 
World citizenship, which every man of 
today must have if he to tn be In the 
real currents of progress, They can be 
mieeesafnl only if the members of tbe 
groups enter whole-heartedly into tbe 
discussions and carry them through l<-r 
the entire six weeks.

•.I the HennM-ltier team. inn the passing, 
the one feature that can be built up, 
was lacking. It is expected that Coach 
.. te. who ba» jio.1 taken tbe learn met, 
will develop the necessary teamwork 
ho that the Npringileld gsmeof f»ainr- 
day, Feb, ft, will be a mm ii different 
vi,,ry from the tfpringfieid game eartj 
this season.

New Committee to Act and Publish 
Data as Soon as Possible. 

Further progress toward the Proru 
was made iu the election of a I'rom 
fniii in i m ••»• at the Junior class meeting 
Wednesday, January 28, after assembly. 
The following men constitute the corn- 
mil teo: < ; u y F. MacLeod of Lowell. 
Char lei M. Hoardniau of Amherst, Geo. 
M. Campbell of Baltimore, Earls l). Lo- 
throp of West Hridgewater and Harold

mittee is tu have complete charge of de- 
tails, referring only matters of principle 
lo the clatS. It will submit information 
regarding dates, tickets, expenses, en- 
tertainments anil rulings in govern the 
"I'rom" season as soon as they are 

Having placed the "I'rom - ' ijuestion 
in competent hands, the class elected 
Gordon B, Crafts as class cheer leader. 
Crafts asked for a show of real 1920 
spirit in support of class contests. The 
pride of the class was stirred l»y Presi- 
dent Faxon's mention of the live juniors 
supporting their hockey team in a 
junior-sophomore game. 

Though little enthusiasm was shown 
in favor of a class smoker, a committee 
was elected lo put one on some time 
nest week. This same committee will 
handle all the ll>20 smokers of the year. 
It is hoped this year's committee will 
afford as good entertainments as last 
\ears committee did.

Seniors Take Long End of 28-16 

Score, While Freshmen Trim 

Juniors 31-18. 

By a safe lead, the seniors defeated 
the sophomores 28-16, and the fresh- 
men won from the juniors 31-10, in the 
Ural of the inlerclass series of basket- 
ball games, last Wednesday evening. 
A large amount of loose playing was 
present in both games, although bard 
lighting and bursts of speed by all of 
the teams made the contests interesting. 

The first half of the sophomore-senior 
game was a very close contest as the 
teams were evenly matched, Speed, at 
the expense of frequent spills and num- 
erous fumbles, featured the playing. 
The major portion of the senior's bas- 
kets was due to the hard work of 
Faneiii . in shooting three of the senior's 
four baskets, leaving the score 8-8 at 
the end of the iirst half. 

The sophomores took the lead at the 
beginning of the last half, but had it 
wrested away from them by 1919 in 
quicklime. The defense of the lower 
classmen weakened, and their oppon- 
ents gained a large lead. As the final 
whistle blew the score stood seniors 2H, 
sophomores 16. 

The start of the junior-fresh man 
game was much slower than that of the 
proceeding struggle. However, the 
freshman soon displayed some speedy 
playing and overcame the disadvantage 
of being outweighed by their oppon- 
ents. The juniors were never in posses- 
sion of the lead during the entire game, 
bewandowaki did the most of the fresh- 
men's scoring during the first half, and 
by the fine support of the other mem- 
bers of the freshman team a lead of 11 
points was gained over the juniors at 
the end of the first half. The score waa 

The second half was practically a 
practice game for the freshmen 81a 
new men were given an opportunity to 
play In the vationa poeitloBs, but the 
juniors were unable to overtake the 
lead obtained by the freshmen. The 
final count left the freshman In Ike 
lead 81-16,

The freshnien met their first defeat of 
the season Saturday night, when they 
were matched against the Williston 
Seminary team at East ham pton. The 
seminary team is composed wholly of 
veterans, all of whom were older than 
any man on the Agg'e team. The home 
team started scoring immediately, ami 
at the end of live minutes' play the score 
stood 8 lo 1 in favor of Williston. The 
Aggie team seemed lost during the Iirst 
half, and could not put up such a strong 
defense as was necessary. During the 
second half, however, the team was 
right up to form and the score was more 
than doubled; but the lead was so pro- 
hibitive a one that the freshmen could 
not overcome it. At the end of the Iirst 
half the score stood 25 to 10 in favor of 
Williston. The bard play of the second 
half on the part of the freshmen netted 
i hem fourteen points, two baskets by 
Hoser and five by Stevens. The star 
playing of the game was divided be- 
tween Monahau and Bombard, of the 
Williston team, each of whom caged 
nil baskets during the game, and Clark 
on the Aggie team. Clark was on bis 
toes all the time, and did some eleeei 
iMiardiug, which prevented sevaral 
-..ores by the Seminary forwards. Stev- 
. ns was at his best, also, and caged 
seren baskets. The team was weakened 
by the loss of Museley, who ii conva- 
lescing after an attack of the "Hu".

If Ma>s;u hu efts i.s t (J hold her place 

as a leading Industrie] state she must 

raise more food. We have huilt up 
our industries, now we must either 
feed our workers at a reasonable cost, 
or else lose them, and with them our 
industries and our very future, to a 
district that ran care for them. It is 
a hig job, and it is going to take big 
men to solve it. It is gong to take 
leaders of the very highest type There 
is no question, but that the state will 
look to this college to supply these 
Leaders, and there is no question but 
that the college must he ready to meet 
thn demand. 

In spite of the fact that every one 
is agreed that it is the duly, and the 
purpose, of the college to turn out 
leaders who can take their stand as 
educated men, there seem s to be a 
haiy answer in the minds of nome 
people as to what eonstitutes an edu- 
cated num. As a result <f this hazi- 
ness there has been a tendency to 
lower tin- standard of scholarship that 
the college lias endeavored to live up 
to If this sentiment is allowed to 
lake form there can be only one re- 
sult. A great influx of men, unpre- 
pared to enter college will find an 
easy access Into this institution. The 
purpose or the college will bi» changed. 
lt.1 slogan will he quantity not quality. 
The reputation of the college will fall 
!u»l as sure as lis standards are 
lowered, for a college Is ludf d by the 
men ii turns out, and In turn the men 
are judged by what they know. A 
man will no longer care to say that 
he is an M. A, ('. graduate, for it will 
f*arry little weight. Kmphiy><re thru 
'•in the state will send to the western 
iillegpN for Ihelr agricultural special- 
ism. The state rollege win fall Into 
the category of munty agricultural 
school s. 

The college csn do far more for the 
■.late, and for the country as a whole, 
by graduating ninety or a hundred 
highly trained, broadly educated 
leaders ea«li year than it can hy grad- 
uating two hundred men whoa* aver- 
age standard In below college grade, 

All men are not fit for leadership, 
and It la well that they are not ■ 
choice must be made snd the more 
rigid this se le ct ion Is, the better the 
type of leader The time to make this 
election Is before a man enters col- 
lege, not after If a man has the 
faculty for I ip or the desire for 

a broader • n he will show it 

before graduating from high wbool. 
In the majority of cases a profeasor 
• an at the end of id* weeks, if not 
lcttx, ipll ju*t what men will undoabt- 
.illy fail to graduate from lack of 
aWHly. Why bring men to college for 
*is months or a year and spend val- 
aablt time Irving to make educated 
ti inler« out of those whom from the 
very mtarl are doomed to fail I.ef 
this type of man whose Blind runs 
more to practical, or mechanical ideas 
enter the two-year ceurpe, 

Why bring the college dowa to a 
high school grade simply hecaaae there

If any so called "improTenients" are 
to be made, why not bring the faeilltlea 
for the students who are here, up- 
to-#afe. There is hardly a depart- 
ment on the campus hut what is handi- 
capped for lack of equipment or hous-

to turn out leaders, men who will

One Year Rule Suspended. 
The executive committee ot the Inter 

collegiate Association Ot Amateur Ath 
letics of America voted al a recent meet- 
ing in New York City to suspend the 
"one year rule*' for college athletes 
who ha>e been in service during the 
war. A recoiiiiiienilaiioii to the asso- 
ciation will be made that B, A . T. <'. 
men who have continued in college will 
be eligible for Intercollegiate e\. nts. 

Service during the war includes act- 
ual military service. Y. M. C. A, and 
similar organization work, munitions, 
shipbuilding, ami other war tnduatriei 
The only condition to be met is thai 
men out ot service before .lau. »'■ must 
be back at thai date, and must be back 
by April lirsl ami within three weeks 
after their discharge of resignation 
from the service. 


The varsity track prospects for t In- 
coming season are fairly bright ac- 
cording to Toadi Dickinson. Some- 
thing more definite about the team 
however will be known after February 
15, when the team runs against New 
Hampshire State at the Army-Navy 
meet in East Armory Boston. 

The loss of Pree and Newell of last 
years team Is keenly idt. but there is 
still a wealth of good material left in 
the College, and well might we feel 
optimistic for a successful season. 

Of last year's squad, there remains 
< allaiian. Carpenter, Yesair and ('hand- 
ler from the senior class; Wright 
Dewing, and Lyons from the Junior 
Class. Besides these upper class men, 
Sullivan and Boring from the fresh- 
man class are showing up exceedingly 
well In practice. 

Owing to the short time that practice 
has been held, many of the men have 
not yet rounded Into form. Veaalf per- 
haps being an exception. He is going 
better than ever this vear. and with 
him aa a nucleus C oh Dickinson will 
•-ertainly turn out a team that will he 
up to the standard of former year- 
It is hoped that Carpenter one «f 
the winners In last year's B. A. A, 
will he eligible to run this year As 
moat of ua, know, hi» ■ occ ialty l» 
the lttt yd. run. On account ef hi« 
winning this event from Joie Bay of 
Illinois iaat year In the B. A A lie 
win undoubtedly be handicapped a Ml. 
A handicap does not mean much to 
Carpenter however, and his present, 
will bolster Up the team immeasurc- 

The first meet baa already t 
mentioned aa being against New 
Hampshire State College on the flf- 
n til of this month. On March 1. 
the team runs Worcester Tech. in the 
1 A. A. meet at Boston Arnlnge- 
menta are also trying to b*. mad. m 
that the team can go to New York on 
March S and participate in the inter 
« olleglBta meet, 

Besides theae regular wloduleil 
meet? it is hoped that a couple of 
meets can be staged against Am in r r^t 
college The nweta between the two 
colleges have always attracted a great 
deal of attention in past years, m 
there Is no doubt but what there will 
he sum. ieni int. rest this year to war- 
rant their arrangement.

The foiowiriK letter from "i«yp" 
Goodwin *1X sliows what Aggie has 
been doing. 

January 3, 191s. 
Dear — , 

Xow that our work is nearly com- 
pleted and we have hopes of soon 
being on the way to the U. S. A., my 
thoughts, sure, turn to old Aggie. It 
certainly, seems ages, since I left 
there but it is barely twelve months. 

The day after tomorrow, it will be 
just twelve months, since I was "mus- 
tered in" with some forty odd men 
from Aggie at Camp Upton. At the 
camp we put in three months of hard 
work and training at the 3rd O. T. S. 
April lBt most of us went into the 
79th division, then at Camp t'pton, and 
on the 15th of April, we left New York 
for England. We landed at Liverpool, 
cr oMOd England to Dover and landed 
at Calais May 1st. All those, who were 
at the 3rd O. T. S. were not commis- 
sioned, until July 13th, although we 
had been recommended in April. For 
four weeks, we went through a stiff 
course of training, with the British 
around St. Omer, as N*. P 0*8, 

Then suddenly, we were shifted to 
the Luneville sector in Alaoce. There, 
we bad our first experiences of trench 
warfare. It was Heaven there, to 
what most of us got into later. After 
celebrating the 4th of July, in the 
trenches there, we came out for a rest, 
and those recommended received their 
commissions as second lieutenants. 

I was assinged to the 32nd division, 
which w»s then on its way to take part 
in the Chateau-Thierry affair. On the 
way to join the division I had a week in 
Paris, and it wan a mighty busy week, 
too. On July 27lh, I joined the divi- 
sion, and was assigned to the Machine 
gun company, lS&th inf. detachment. 
By some matter of luck, I am still 
whole, and with the company. We 
went Into the battle north of Chateau- 
Thierry near Fremeg and from that 
day until August 5th, we drove the 
Germans until they were apgras the 
Vesle river. 

After being relieved here, and having 
a short rest, our division, next went 
into action under General Mangln's 
direction north-west of Solssons, 
Here we sure, had a bard oat to crack 
in the capture of the town of Jnvigny. 
It was completed in six days, bnt it 
was a terrible six days. 

Krom Juvigny. we weal to Jonleville, 
south of Verdun for a tea day's rent, 
From there we went to join la the fun, 
which was just starting west of Ver- 
dun. After iwea^r-ooe days of con- 
tinual fighting, we finally succeeded in 
breaking the Krtemhlide Stcllrlng, a 
line of resistance, to which the Ger- 
mans had retreated from the Hlnden- 
burg line. We followed the German's 
retreat across the Mouse, and again 
went into battle at Kmrey. That is 
where we were when the armistice 
was declared, and we had just received 
orders to go OTW the lop. 

Om November lith, we Began our 
march to the Rhine, thru Belgium, 
Luxemburg and crowing the Rhine. 
Friday, the 13lh or December, we 
crossed Bear Cohlcnss, and are now 
forming part of the lino of out-posts 
surrounding that bridgehead. 

For scenery this country is truely 
beautiful, and the woods are full of 
game. Our company had three doer 
for a ChrbHmas dinner and It eer- 
ily, was an Improvement over the 

Vorned-wooley" and "gold-fish." 

Now we are all "on our toes" wait- 
ing lor that word to start for home. 
My first thought!) are to get hack to 

Sincerely yours, 
William Irving Goodwin,

Naval Aviator Dives 500 Feet into 
Bay at Pensacola, Fla. 

News has Just been received of the 
death of Ensign Ralph Roby McCor- 
mack who was in the Naval Aviation 
service at Pensacola. McCormiek 
compleUil lii.s Freshman year here at 
Aggie, enlisting immediately after- 
ward, and was sent to Tech where he 
received his ground-school training. 
From there he went to Key West, and 
their to Pensacola where he met his 

McCormiek was out flying with two 
other aviators, and their machine was 
seen to do a nose-dive at 12:50 P. M. 
last Saturday. Nothing was thought 
of the incident however until the men 
failed to return at the usual time when 
a search was made, and the three 
bodies recovered near where the nose- 
dive was believed to have taken place. 

It is believed that the fliers were 
making a flight from Mobile to Pensa- 
cola when ilit- accident occurred. 
Nothing has yet been ascertained as 
to its cause. This is the fifth accident 
that has occurred in the fifth squadron 
since last August. 

In college McCormack was Captain 
of the Freshman football team, was a 
member of the Freshman baseball 
team, He was a leading character in 
last year's Freshman play. He waa 
probably the most popular man In his 
class, and was very promising ma- 
terial for varsity athletics. About a 
month ago McCormack was back at 
college to see some of his friends, and

iU ally and morally clean, and more 
than that they were mentally clean 
and alert. From their first arrival in 
the ports of debarkation the boys in 
Khaki got new visions of the work 
that lay before them as they saw the 
ilinded and maimed men, the suffer- 
ing mothers, and the girl muniton 
workers of France hearing silent testi- 
mony to them of the horror of toe 
situation. It was this vision that 
made the men dare to risk everything. 
There were times when there was 
no military explanation for the way 
that the American Forces— made up 
)f men from all the many walks oi 
civil life— fought against the Flower of 
the trained German army. There wat 
no solution for that victory unless it 
was the fact that underneath each 
in m was conscious that he was allied 
with the Forres for right and that 
God was wtiii those forces. 

The men who return to us from 
the battlefields of Frame have suf 
fered much; they have dared muHt 
they have learned much. They wil* 
wonder what we have beeu doing while 
,hey have been paying the price of 
war. How shall we meet that silens 
luery of theirs? Shall they find u 
icdged In with selfishness, seeking 
,nly material gain? Can we under 
tand the language of these men? 
,n we readjust the value of things 
in our life? Can we play the mm 
* • have play. «i 
lay here? If 
.ni nu' soldier 
unflinchingly, if wo can meet him on .«• 
basts of appreciation, and sympalhj 
md understanding, if we can ha v. 
with htm the desire to put our all oi. 
lie altar of service, then there i 
tome hope that tl»e kingdoms of toU

The first game of the second sot of 
the interclass basketball games started 
with a rush. In less tluin a minute. 
French scored two points for the Ben- 
loft, and Smith immediately tied the 
wore for the freshmen. It was nip 
and tuck from then on. The Freshmen 
had shot after shut at the basket bill 
I'ailcd in score. The Seniors had their 
,\e oi' the iron fine: and despite eon- 
stanl offside plays, were aide to ob- 
tain a score of 11 to 7 at the end of the 

in the second half much roupli and 
tumble was in evidence. "Doe" Wil- 
liams came back with his old fight and 
played too hard a game for the Fresh- 
men. It looked as if 13 to 7 would 
ad until Faneuf shot a foul and 
Thomas followed it with a goal 
French and Faneuf blocked the dan- 
OU moves of the Freshmen, while 
th of the Freshman team was all

An Invitation to "Get Going". 

There still seems to be a Utile doubt 
in the minds of some undergraduates 
ma to the real significance of the 
Dean's Board, Even tho it may here 
been dedicated to Dean Barns, it has 
its serious side. It la not merely a 
means of notifying the men that they 
are near the danger point in the qual- 
ity or quantity of work they are doing, 
this could be done by sending out per- 
sonal notifications. The real pur post 
lies In the psychological effect that 
"free advertisement" has upon spur- 
ring a man on to do better work. This 
is no time to get discouraged. Now 
is the Utne to get into the game, If 
you hare not already done so.

The name of Windom A. Allen was 
added January 31st to the honor roll 
with those who have given their all far 
Hie cause of democracy and the 
safety or humanity. He succumbed to 
the third attack of pneumonia. 

Mr. Allen upon graduating from 
Tufts College in February, 1916 be- 
came a chemist at Massachusetts Agri- 

ultural Experiment Station. After 
faithfully serving this institution in i 
very satisfactory manner for one year 
•mil a half, he joined the ranks of the 
United States Army. 

While at Tamp Devens in the fall of 
1017 he contracted a cold which linally 
developed Into a light attack of pneu 
monla. Mr. Allen never re-gained his 
nhysieal strength which was greatly 
-educed by this disease. Later he was 

ransferred from the infantry to the 

heniical department and spent the 
remainder of his active service invest!, 
luting deadly gases. Last summer he 
becsnta poisoned by the gases from 
which he never completely recovered 
Mthough last December while still at 
the Government Hospital, West Haven, 
(*onn., he was feeling so mneh better 
thai a letter was written Dr. J. B. 
Undsey concerning his former posi- 
tion at the experiment st.U'on which 
was being held for him upon hi* re- 

Mr. Allen while In Amherst ftaaoci* 
tied himself with organisations which 
stood for the uplift of humanity, lb 
was an usher at the First Congrega- 
tional Church and a member of Its 
Men's Class He also was a member of 
\l A V. Faculty club, Amherst Rifle 

Itih. and M A. C Graduate flub Bas- 
ket Hall Team 

Be I n(- Allen's room-mate during his 
*tay in Afnberat, 1 can truthfully say 
that his high ideals, real christian 

haracter and noble ambitions made a 
lasting impression upon the mind-, of 

lit many friends. It is the regret of 
all of them that the One who doth 
everything well, called him from hen 
it such an early age in life 

His friends here send their <i< «<pest 
heart fell sympathy to his in loved 
mother and sister who have given the 
only son In the family for the freedom 
of others. It la the wish of all that 
ihey may recelre comfort in having 
made such a noble sacrifice.

for the Freshmen was by Stevens in

Worcester Polytech continued Its 
winning streak by defeating Aggie, on 
Saturday nigbt in Worcester, they gell- 
ing the long end of a 2H to 15 neore. 
The game was characterized liy brilliant 
teamwork, passing and guarding by 
both teams. It waa Aggies' effeelive 
guarding that kept the score as close in 
the first period. 

The M. A. C. combination started in 
likes whirlwind and jumped into the 
front when Gasser shot a basket from 
the floor wbieh was followed almost Iflt- 
medlately by Parkhuret's twin counter. 
At this pofttt Tecb awoke to what was 
happening and It waa only a few mi- 
nutes before the Bcore had been tied m 
Sirougerton and Kosbver bad each caged 
a goal from tbe floor. With the score 
board reading four all, the teams 
fought for the advantage and soea IV<h 
waa in the lead as Kusbver scored from 
tbe foul line three times before IftsCsr*

In the second period W. I*. I. opened 
up gad played a wonderful passing and 
..hooting game that seemed to bewilder 
the Maroon aggregation. During Ibis 
period Aggie fought hard but could not 
teem 10 connect with tbe ring, many 
abota that looked like sure bankets 
went astray by inches. Slrongerton, 
Ihe Worcester left toward, was the bin 
»corer uf tbe night, getting five goal* 
from the lea*, while t:*pt. Ku»hver tal- 
lied six points on Held goals and three 
from the 15 f.*»t mark. Tbe defensive

Sophomore Varsity Men Prove Too 
Much for Freshmen. 

By a score of 4 to 1, the sophomore 
hockey team triumphed over the fresh- 
man seven last Wednesday. Both 
teams played a defensive game during 
the first period and the fighting spirit 
was not shown greatly by either team 
until the second half, when the su- 
perior sophomore offense overwhelmed 
the freshmen. 

During the first few minutes of play, 
Collins of the freshman team made two 
well directed, long shots at the soph- 
omore goal, but they were warded off 
by goal tender Stevens. The first goal 
of the games was the result of Snow 
carrying the puck in front of the fresh- 
man goal and the opportune shot ot 
Anderson who captured the puck and 
put It in the net The playing shifted 
alternately between the goals during 
the half. McCartly made the second 
sophomore score by a shot from a few 
feet in front ot the freshman goal, and 
then Lingham did the same trick for 
the freshmen, leaving the score at the 
end of the first half 2-1 In favor of '21. 
The sophomore offense carried the 
puck to the freshmen's end of the ice 
at the beginning of the second half, 
and another sophomore point was add- 
ed by a cooperative shot between An- 
derson and Snow. This time Snow 
put the score over while "Andy" was 
the accomplice. The last score was 
made by McCarthy by a shot from 
almost the center of the rink. After 
this the freshmen stiffened up their re- 
sistance and neither side was able to 

McCarthy and Snow kept the fresh- 
men constantly worried by their 
speedy game, while Collins and Lyons 
were the backbone of the freshman 
team. The final score of 4 to 1 was 
very creditable to the freshman, con- 
sidering that the sophomore team con- 
tained three varsity players.

Both Games Exceedingly Fast and 
Well Played. 

The third set of games in the inter- 
1 lass basketball series was played 
Wednesday evening, with a good crowd 
present and intense rivalry evidenced 
hy all participants. 

The first game between the two old 
rivals, 1919 and 1920, opened up with 
■ hang. Poothall tactics were dis- 
played, in profusion. The seniors had 
a slight advantage over the Juniors in 
this department, at first, and after a 
few clever passes, Faneuf succeeded 
in dropping in two baskets followed 
a few seconds later by one by Wil- 
liams. This ended the scoring for 
some time, until Scott scored a basket 
for the Juniors the only field goal ob- 
tained by them in the first half. The 
score when the whistle blew was: 
Seniors 13. Juniors 5. 

The second half opened up with I 
different lineup for the Juniors. Taylor 
^witching from center to forward in 
place of Scott and Sullivan playing 
.. nter. This change strengthened the 
liinlors considerably. They started 
tiff with a rush that completely be- 
wildered their opponents. Their pa«- 
work was accurate and fast and within 
w minutes of play, Taylor scored 
three pretty baskets from the floor. 
Sullivan followed this up with an- 
other. It looked for a while as If IM I 
would forge into the lead, but the 
Settlors staged a great comeback ana 
fieir defence held their opponents 

mi nit the rest of the game. Due to 
improved defense of the Juniors 
ihe Seniors could not score more than 
a., baskel In this half until the Ian 
few seconds of play, when White caged 
a pretty one from andcr the basket 
The game ended with a final score of:

Professor Hasbrouck and "Art* Dunn 
•20 Speak. 

The Juniors held their first smoker 
of the year last Wednesday after the 
basketball games. Though disap- 
pointed at their teams' defeat, the class 
showed sufficient enthusiasm to make 
the smoker a success 

President Harrington called on Luce 
for a few popular selections of the 
violin, Oppe accompanied him. Pro- 
fessor Hasbrouck then fare a brief 
character sketch of the tat» Thiwdore 
Roosevelt and read one of hi* last 
qrtlcies and a poem to blm, "The 
Great American was a plain man with 
a plain man's virtues and that dy 
immlc energy that gave those virtues 
power to govern a nstion." The speak* 
er left the Impression of the strength 
of character gained by clean living. 

Art Dunn, was asked to give some of 
his experiences In the trenches. His 
tale was weird. He related his action 
at Ton! and Cantigny, Of his battalion 
of over 1200 only 81 came eat unas- 
sisted from the plateau before Can- 
tfgny Art was wounded by a machine 
gun ballet in this action. When re- 
lieved, his divlson car<»d not where

but just relief, There wss little to 
say on any matter after Dunn's talk.

rurrlculum of required subjects. In 
nplte of this faith In the benefits to 
be derived from Humanities, the Jun- 
iors and Seniors are required to take 
on English. What little ability they 
may have acquired in being able to 
express themselves clearly and cor- 
rectly, either, on paper or in conversa- 
tion, during the first two years In col- 
lege is lost In the scramble for "prac- 
tical" courses in the last two years. 
The results of this are, in many cases, 
a disgrace to the college. More energy 
should be directed towards the build- 
ing up of a strong English Depart- 
ment. The business of this college is 
not merely to turn out Agricultural 
specialists, but more particularly edu- 
cated leaders.

Room for Improvement. 

There Is little doubt but that it Is 
aa extremely difficult proposition to 
lay out a coarse of study that will 
coincide with the needs of all student.* 
In the four year course. There Is, 
however, a strong tendency to leave 
oat the so-called cultural subjects In 
order to make room for the more prar. 
Ucal courses. That there is great need 
for these typically agricultural courses 
so oae will deny, but at the same tlmr 
the college can never tarn oat leaden 
of the highest type If the cultural 
courses are forced Into a minor posi- 

As aa example of the extent to which 
this tendency for practical coarse. 
has seeped Into the college curriculum 
we find the freshmen required to lake 
■uch coursea as Poultry. Horticulture. 
Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, etc 
True, this Is as agricultural college 
bat bow about the man who enter? 
college in order to major to chemistry 
or Entomology? Of what ass hi Poul- 
try to this man? Or If a man U plan- 
ning to major la Poultry why should 
he be forced to take courses In animal 
Husbandry or Horticulture? What- 
ever a man learns will probably prove 
to be of use at some time but there 
is such a vast amount of knowledge 
that might prove to be of use, a choice 
must be made. If such course* art 
to be given la the Freshman sod 
Sophomore years why not make them 

We pride curatives here at M, A. C 
that w« require the Freshmen and 
Sophomores to take courses In Eni- 
lith aad ether Humanities because we 
know that they are worth while. One 
only has to washier the type of man 
that Vale, Harvard, or Dartmouth 
torus out to ha convinced that the eo* 
caUed cultural or broadening courses 
are decidedly worth adding to tbe 

Dormitory vs. Drill Hall. 
In a recent Issue of the Collegian 
mention was made of the fact that 
the college was asking for an appro- 
priation of 1150.000 t/> he used for a 
women's building and equipment. This 
proved to be somewhat of a surprise to 
many of the men who, altho they may 
have realized that the need of decent 
housing for the women students was 
becoming acute, had been expecting 
to hear the annual plea for a new 
Chemistry building which would give 
the men working in it a fighting 
-nance of escaping In case of fire, or a 
new library which would accommo- 
date at least twenty per cent of the 
Undents and that would provide room 
for books so that it would be unneces- 
sary to keep them in cold storage In a 
lamp cellar, or for a Drill Hall and 
Gymnasium that would provide room 
ind equipment for the physical educa- 
tion of those men who are not spectal- 
zed athletes and who are unable to 
make the varsity or class teams. As 
*he need for these new buildings be- 
come more pressing. It becomes dlffl- 
ult to decide which Is the most needed 
for the lack of any of them will, not 
mly impede but will actually block 
*he forward progress of the college. 

Since the founding of the college 
practically nothing has been done for 
lie women students or any Incentive 
thrown out In order to Induce more of 
then to enter the college. In fact 
everything has been against them. The 
few who did have the pluck to come 
icre have bean buffeted around each 
vear, and sometimes oftener. from one 
rooming place to another. At tbe pre- 
sent time there are over fliir women 
undents here twenty-two of whom art 
regular students. Draper Hall Is filled 
to its full capacity, which means that 
the majority of the women students 
must room out In private nouses away 
from the chaperonage of an older ad- 
visor. There are many reasons why 
these conditions most be changed. 
Farther than thli those women who 
have been assigned rooms In Draper 
Hal! are not to be congratulated, for 
the conditions here are anything but 
what they should be The constsnt 
odor of cooking food, and the noise 
from the commons* kitchen art only 
two of tbe many objections to the far- 
ther ase of Draper Hall as a Women's 

The plea for a new chemistry build- 
ing, library, and Drill Hall has by no 
means bean given op. It is merely 
that the needs for proper housing of 
the women students seem to be the 
most pressing at the present time

In order to clear up any doubts that 
might be in the minds of some of the 
students in regard to the college in- 
firmary: the Collegian takes this op- 
portunity to make the following an- 

The daily charge for a student Is 
one dollar and a half Sm dollar and 
a quarter of this goes to pay for the 
food and laundry, and twenty-liv. 
cents goes toward the wear and teat 
on the bedd'ng and the gas bill 

The College furnishes heat, light 
buildings, and nursing free of charge, 
the infirmary is therefore a decided 
financial liability and not an asset. 

Drags and dressings are furnished 
by the infirmary at less thin cost. 
The reason for this alight charge hi 
that the privilege of free drags and 
dressings has been abused by some of 
the student ' 

While U la not a general practice the 
Infirmary will take patients who are 
not students, I e. faculty members aad 
■ ollege employees, for two dollars n 
day i 

If for any reason a patient desires a 
special nurse, be nut nay all charge* 
including fees, board aad room 

It nnst be distinctly andenttood that 
the Infirmary is not a money making 
proposition. The college furnishes 
the bnlldlngs, the nurse, heat, light 
and repairs. The patients pay for the 
their meals, their laundry, and the 
and tear on the bedding.

The military department has com- 
menced measuring the member* for 
R. O. T. C. uniforms in anticipation 
of the beginning of drill April 1. 1 
shirt, 1 blouse, 1 pair troiises, 1 pair 
puttees, hat and hat cord are included 
In the equipment of eaeli man. It is 
hoped that there will be sufficient in- 
terest evident so i bat guard duty and 
other advanced work nay lie taken up. 

To date there have been very few 
who have signified their intentions of 
attending a summer military camp. 
This fact is due probably to (be student's 
desires to work daring the summer. 


A class meeting of the Juniors last 
Wednesday after Assembly brought 
forth strenuous appeals for support of 
the "Index." Editor-in-chief Maples 
and Manager Campbell asked for sig- 
natures guranteeing payment of cer- 
ain printing and engraving bills. 
Enough men signed to pay for the 
whole book. 

A report showed that the Juniors 
were advised not to put the book out, 
that no book had been put out suc- 
cessfully for twelve years, that no col- 
lege advice would be given that no 
faculty support need be solicited; in 
fact a challenge was thrown at the 
loyalty and ability of the class. The 
Juniors have rallied against this sus- 
picion and now have an organization 
to put through this publication. The 
support of the college body Is relied 


The class elected John A. Crawford 
of Allston to be Junior representative

For Up-to-Date Farmers 

\re you a business farmer? Do you buy simply "Farmers* Delight" or 
do you purchase units of plant food I Now* that the war is ended we can 
offer for the first lime in quantity two high-grade fertilizers: 


10.7fo Nitrogen (13/ Ammonia) M% Available 

Phos. Acid. 

Think of a "i 3-47****'* 1 )* units of plant food in one ton! This phos- 
phate of ammonia is a nearly pure chemical with its ni rogen in the form of 
ammonia and its phosphoric acid mostly soluble in water. Ammo-Phos it 
endorsed by experiment stations and agricultural scientists everywhere. It 
is especially suited for use alone for pushing peas and beans and for grams, 
or in conjunction with manure of tankage for general crops. 


10/ Nitrogen (\2% Ammonia) 26g Available 

Phos. Acid. 

Approximately one-half of the nitrogen is mineral and one-half organic, 
phosphoric acid mostly water soluble. 

These fertilizers leave no objectionable salines in the soil, are noo* 
caustic clean, fine-ground, dry and are packed in toe-lb, baps. Prices «- 
trtinely low, analysis considered. Potash furnished if desired. 

We are also effeting a full line of all fertilizer materials. Write us for 
prices nncl formula suggestions for 1919.

science, and at times has been an 
instructor of short course students in 
Dairy Uocteriology. 

Mutkokar goes back to India for a 
great and valuable purpose, as he is to 
assist in the reorganization of thb 
India Di |iartment of Agriculture, along 
American lines. He is one admirably 
fitted to assist in this great work as 
lie has a vast knowledge of agriculture 
as well as a definite idea of the work- 
ings of the U. S. D. A. 

Mutkuke wishes to take this oppor- 
tunity to express his gratitude to all 
Aggie men and women for the kind- 
ness that they have shown him during 
his long and arduous visit to America. 


Tuesday eveolag saw the return of an 

old fashioned arena parly, stayed by a 
m-leet lew Hum I lie freshmen else* un- 
der! he diteel inn of the senate and the 
sophomore class. The party which was 
to take the form of an educational class, 
reminded ihe spectators more of a 
RomM gladiitorial contest. A well ar- 
ranged program kept the audience 
awake most of I he lime. 

The freshmen offenders were hrougbf 
singly into the arena Idindfolded, all 
were appaiemix dlSSSSd tor thsoOCS*

After walking across the stage the 
misii'b offence was announced hy the 
ollieial elan SSDOUSes?. lie wan then 
asked to sinu "lie or two solos, during 
which act lie was completely thrown 
off his hala ' * ' -holt de- 

i a toast 
to the sophomore class. The exact 
texture of the toast , is unknown, but 
if one can judge from facial expres- 
sions It fflUMt hare been a coarse

which apparently made him feel as 
llgal »* a feather, even though there 
was a striking resemblance to a poultry 
show. Tin* wis followed by what 
mitht he called a "social whirl" which 
wax Intoxicating to Bay the leant. Itnx- 
ing and wrestling matches were then 
staged between the blindfolded men. 
These were followed by a general box- 
ing milch In a small part of the arena 
which was boarded off. Very few af. 
fective blows were struck. The party 
ended with an aqaffc set, in which the 
contestant* attempted to swim from 
one end of the arena to the other, and 
return, aided by paddles. 


The college sincerely regrets to hear 
of the coming departure of Prof. Mc 
Sua and Dr. Sprafftte, who are to do 
educational work in France, Arrange- 
ments will be made to carry on their 
work here, but it will be exceedingly 
hard to till their vacancies. Itoth of

Suitable Memorial For Aggie War 
Heroes Was Discussed. 

Last Wednesday's student forum, the 
first of the term, proved a signal success 
While acted as chairman of the meet- 
ing, and after reading the usual weekly 
notices brought up matters for discuss- 
ion. The lirst matter brought up was 
that of a memorial to the Aggie men 
who have died for their country. After 
a brief outline of an idea to place a tab- 
let somewhere containing the names of 
these men. White asked for sugges- 

After a short silence Buffum sug- 
gested that a tablet be placed in the 
center of the rear wall of the stage at 
Mockbndge auditorium. This seemed 
to meet with general approval. Her- 
man then proposed a plan for si art ing 
out to raise a fund for this memorial 
whicb be thought should lake several 
years to raise. Burt outlined apian 
enlarging upon that which had just 
been given l»y Herman. He suggested 
erecting a stone building to contain the 
names of theBe men, or a three aided 
stoneeolumii. as be expressed it in true 
oratorical style, "a memorial, which 
perhaps will cohI several thousand 
dollars". The memorial he suggested 
be placed In front of our new library of 
whicb we have dreamed so long. Hast 
tugs suggested that any such plan 
should be limited so that the men who 
knew these men as classmates should 
pay for its erection, and not future 
classes who did not know them person- 
ally, Herman and Campbell then add 
ed to this idea suggesting that the 
present student hotly, and alumni give 
this memorial. White said that those 
in charge of such matters would act at 
cording to the sentiment of the student 
body as fx pressed at that meeting, and 
passed on to the next subject, that of 
the Dining Hall. 

.Suggestions for the improvement of 
food at the Dinning Hall were request- 
ed, also any complaints, No one seem- 
ed Inclined la speak oo the subject 
however so White requested that those 
who had been 'crabbing" plea*e "crab 
in forum, but refrain outside". This 
was too much for Blaachard who quite 
energetically recommended rubbing the 
word "crabbing" horn the Aggie vocab- 

Hastings then urged the students to 
turn oat for Mr. Shoft'l tings on Toes- 
day nights, and work up a Utile harm- 
ony. He pointed out how enthusiastic 
tbipso, who had been to the other two 
were, and hoped for a large attendance 
next week, 

Kobe? i *on did foil justice to the word 
"crab" in an alt ack on the cheer leader* 
whom be claimed lacked "pep" and all 
the other n e c essar y qualities. Harvy 
soon disproved his claims however and 
said that the blame retted on the stud- 
rale who have failed to learn the cfaeoti 
well, ID pointed out that oue man 
««ld not do the work fur the whole 
college. As it was already late the 
meeting was then adjourned

it was feared ihe Inn-key weather would 
not last. The ice was in good condition. 
Inn I lie lack of rink hoards handieaped 
the li A. C. team. 

The gSSsS started with some spirit, 
and allowed some clever passing on the 
pari of the Assumption team. Often in 
that tirsl halt, they ettmc within shoot -

shot. Much credit i s due In l*'a\uii for

Democracy And Relay Races. 
It has been the policy of Be veral of 
the fraternities to try to postpone their 
races in the interfraternily series when 
ever it has been found that one or more 
of their best runnerB could not run. 
This is a natural tendency, for everyone 
wants to win their race. But this spirit 
if allowed (o go to an extreme, would 
defeat the very purpose of these inter- 
fraternity contests: to promote friend- 
ship and rivalry between the societies 
and to develop interest in track athlet- 
ics. It is desired to get as many men 
from each group iuto the running as is 
possible, uot to develop nine teams of 
four men each to a maximum of perfect- 
ion. Many men have ability in track 
work wlin would not touch the "board" 
if it were not for these races, ami ii is to 
draw these men out that they are in- 

It is our much lauded spirit of .de- 
mocracy that tries to get every man in 
college into the activities of the inslitu- 
lion, athletic or non-albletie aa the in- 
iliviHnal is best suited. As far as track 
work is concerned, tbeh, the more men 
who get into this interfraternily track, 
the more nearly is the true Aggie spirit 
realized. Kun your races, then, wheth- 
er your crack runners are there or not.

At the second college sing, held in 
the auditorium Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 
0-30, but half as many were present aa 
at the first sing. 

Mr. Short, the leader, gave some val- 
uable instruction in voice culture. Ex- 
ercises iu tone and quality took up most 
of the half hour. Popular Bongs were 
tried with increasing success. Every 
man left the hall iu a happy, ambitious 
mood, with a better opinion of his abil- 
ity to sing. 

Though time is a factor to be reck- 

oned with, one half hour a week for 
voice culture can be spared by every- 
one In college. For the Bake of build- 
ing up a strong college body of singers, 
if not for individual improvement, men 
should atleud these sings. Seventy-five 
good singers cannot make up for 400 
mediocre voiceB. At the next sing, Mr. 
Short should have at least 200 voiceB.

Due to the small number of junior,

Feature of Both Games. 

Friday evening, Feb. 5W, tbe bask. -t 
hall team played l'rall Institute at 
Brooklyn, N. Y.* The game *was fasl , 
and well played throughout. M. A. C 
started off like a whirlwind, Capt. M< 
Cartby scoring the llrst basket inside oi 
thirty seconds. Tbe Frail Hoor, which 
Is very sbort, did not allow for the open 
team work and passing which has been 
oaa of Aggie's aimngeat points. The 
ball repeatedly changed hands duiing 
tbis half. McCarthy did sll of the 
scoring for M. A.C the Ural half, shoot 
ing two bsskela and scoring on sis out 
of seven fouls, Oasaer and Qowdj both 
played n good defensive isanie. I'ark 
hunt's playing waa fasl, and his pass 
Ing exceptionally good, his opponent 
being unable tu keep up with bim 
The M. A. C men had by far Ihe 
greatest number of chances to score. 
but could not seem to connect with Ihe 
baaket. Tbe Hrst half ended with tbe

The second hall opened up with I'ralt

ami again when Stevens held the ball 
the M. A. V. team wouM he waiting 
down their end ,,i the Moor while the 
Steven's team paaaed t tie ball hack and 
forth amongst themselves* awaiting a 
< li;mee lo break through the Aggie de- 
fence, The opponents eriss cross pass- 
ing worked well throughout the entire 
game and was hard to break up. The 
lirst score of the game was made by 
Capt. M>'( arthy from a free try. Carl- 
son, the bi« Stevens center played an 
exceptionally fast hard game scoring 
live baskets the lirst half. Parkhurst 
ai.i! Met arthy each played fast, hard 
basketball throughout both halves. each, 
however, scoring but one basket apiece 
in the lirst half. The remarkably 
m ■urate foul shooting by Capt. McCar- 
thy kept the score of the two teaniH on 
a fairly close par, during the lirst half. 
When the whistle for the half blew 
Stevens was leading by a score of IN 12. 
The second half opened up with 
Mevens sr.uing three basekets in i|Uick 
Hiiccession. This seemed i„ lake the 
heart out of the Aggie men who had 
hoped to overcome the handicap of the 
tlrst half, a free trial by Met arthy, and 
and another goal by Stevens made the 
lOoreMtO 18, At this point Stedraan 
was Hiibstiiiited for Cuwdy, who was 
Hullerinii from a strained side, but who 
wits pla\ log a remarkable good defeu- 
|iv« uame. Ilie playinu Ol Egger and 
Haley tor Mevens, featured this half. 
The pasMiny ol tbe Aggie team was 
very poor. Smith scored the only goal 
for Aggie in the sec.iml hall. Stevens 
made two substitutions, and Hall was 
substituted tot Smith. Aggie failed lo 
do any more scoring, the game ending

A truly eloquent talk, Ike moat ap- 
pealing erf tbe w ear s was beard at as- 
sembly last Wednesday. Lieutenant 
Harry A. MIJlsoo of the Canadian Afmf 
•poke on Canada's entrance Into the 
war, the Allies* fighting, and our doty 
in the present stage of conflict. Menu, 
Million witsied as a private in August, 
1B14, and went immediately to the frent. 
For bravery and brilliant ability he was 
promoted, and later com missioned aa 
lieutenant. He was wounded three 
times and was gassed once. 

He deeeribed the splendid country of 
t'anlda. rieh ami happy, prosperous 
with its democratic government. Tbe 
cry wmes with tornado speed. 

Before the machinery of recruiting sta- 
tions was ready to supply the 20,000 
offered by Canada to Great Britain, 
100,000 men had voluuteered. 

He told of their awful first gaB attack 
on the first Canadian division, and the 
superhuman charge, led by a dying 
colonel who dropped dead before he had 
gone ten yards, and then the repulse 
of the German picketed troops behind 
tbe woods. There are now 8000 left of 
that original MO.tHM). 

It was the optimism of the men that 
brought victory from battle. The spirit 
of the French widow, a widow of one 
day, in her cry of "Vive la Frauce" was 
typical. American help came— the rest 
of the war story is known. 

But from all this fighting we see but 
one light, one path toward future peace, 
concerted effurt by ihe Allies. Tbe 
lives of men shall not have been spent 
In vain. Democracy must still be the 
basis of government. Our duty to the 
dead "on Flanders Field" keeps us to 
our purpose in tbe future. 

In completing this lofty idea of duty 
the orator gave part of Lincoln's Gettys- 
burg address to hold his point, "that 
government of tbe people, by tbe people 
and for tbe people shall not perish from 
the earth.".

"In speaking of persons, if you cannot 
■ay a pleasant word, say uutbintj," 

A War Memorial. 

Many good suggestions were brought 
out at the student forum as to a tilting 
memorial to the Aggie men who so val- 
iantly gave their lives for the advance- 
ment of humanity That each a me* 
mortal should be erected, no one 
•lucslioued. It is only Siting and proper 
that such a memorial should lie given

Hum the college as an institution, 
althoiiKh individual contributions from 
(amity members should !•<• ;«« - <- i ,iv\ if 
they wish to aid. 

As to the form and place of this me- 
morial there are many posatbUittes. As 
sddltlonal suggestion a memorial gate 
might be erected at Ike entrance of the 
campus leading up to the athletic Meld, 
Executive Uullding, and dormitories. 
This gate night well Ims of simple struc- 
ture, possibly of cement blocks, with 
bronze tablet* on which the names of 
i hose who bad given their lives would 
be placed. Thai such a gateway would 
be appropriate. and would be a decided 
addition to the campus there hi little 

The gateway might consist of a square 
column about tifiern feet In height, on 
top of which some token of the world 
war, such as a torch depicting liberty, 
or a globe rep r e sen ting world democracy 
might be placed. Extending mil from 
this column, in the form of two long 
steps, ten and live fsei in height, could 
be awing. In front of this wing could 
be placed a ceme nt bench which «o»H 
act as a waiting place tor the car. This 
■trttetare, consisting af the main col- 
nan and wing would be placed one on 
either side of the road Whatever Is 
done should be started at once. 

Work and the Man. 
Some weeks ago an editorial appear- 
ed in the Colleyian entitled "Collegiate 
Parasites." This was written with the 
object in view of encouraging more 
men to go out for college activities. 
Many men absolutely fail to grasp the 
idea of what a college education means. 
Studies— yes, by all means, but there 
is more to it than merely being turned 
out a book worm. There is the bigger 
side of acollege education that prepares 
the college man to go out and work 
with men — to be a leader among men. 
This faculty of getting along with men, 
not by domineerance, but by a keen 
understanding of human nature, cannot 
be learned from books. It can only be 
gained by personal coutact with men. 
It is the easiest thing in the world to 
lie back and let the other roan do the 
work aud this is the course many men 
choose. At the class meetings and at 
the athletic contests, it is always the 
same supporters who are present. The 
other men, having crawled into their 
little shells the freshman year, stay 
there and never even so much as let 
out a peep. 

It would be a tine thing, not only tor 
the college, but for the individual 
students if during the freshman year 
each student should be required to put 
a certain amount of time Into college 
activities whether It be weeding the 
tennis courts, singing on the glee club 
or running on a track team. It little 
matters what activity he aids. The 
main object is to do something for the 
college that is doing everything far 
him, thereby helping himself. 

teams, not only at home but out of 
town, and thereby stimulate a little of 
the old Aggie spirit that is lying dor- 
mant in so many of us. 

The only means by which the bell can 
be rung and have effect on student body 
is immediately after the victory; and ii 
should be the duty of all managers to 
wire the college of the outcome. 

The money thus spent would not be 
spent in vain or in useless extravigance. 
On the contrary it would be the best in- 
vestment the Athletic Association could 

make to further the spirit of the entire 


More attention should be paid to the 
notices read in assembly. 

Considerable confusion has been 
caused on the campus because of the 
neglect of these notices. 

College activities would progress with 
greater smoothness if all the students 
paid strict attention during the weekly 
reading of notices aud announcements.

The Cheer Leader. 

The call for candidates tor assistant 
cheer leaders has been issued by tbe 
Senate and the competition will be car- 
ried on under the following rules. 

1. From tbe Junior class two assist- 
ant cheer leaders will be selected by 
the senate. In tbe latter part of April 
one of these will be elected aa perma- 
nent cheer leader by tbe student body. 

ft, As won as (be permanent cheer 
leader Is elected, competition for assist- 
ant cheer leader will be open lo the 
sophomore class. 

S. Two assistant cheer leaders will 
be selected by tbe Senate from these 
new compel Mors who will be voted on 
tbe following year 

Few realize the importance of a good 
cheer leader, It is the cheer leader 
who practically makes or breaks the 
athletics of a college. It Is the cheer 
leader who orgaslHS and conducts all 
mass meetings snd celebrations. There 
Is no man in college who is to looked lo. 
Tbe cheer leader does more than any 
other man to establish the morale of 
tbe student body. A good cheer leader 
means a live student body, A poor 
cheer leader means a dead student 

It takes a man of exceptional ability 
and personality to lead the college and

A scheme of training with special 
reference to reserve officers for the edu- 
cational institutions as approved by tbe 
chief of ordinance is now in the hands 
of tbe general staff. This Hilieme deals 
especially with obtaining material for 
the ordinance department to meet im- 
ergencies. The technical training de- 
rived would also be invaluable for any- 
one intending to take up engineering, 
chemistry or smaller subjedls for his 
life work, 

IMans as proposed would be adaptable to 
various types of institutions, and would 
give tbe individual taking the sourse 
different and tangible advantages. Ex- 
isting courses will be made use of to 
prepare students for ordnance work. 
Valuable subject matter, text books, 
and in some cases trained instructors 
will be furnished. 

Individuals on graduating will with 
their own consent be ordered into ac- 
tive service for one year, as second 
lieutenants with full pay and allowance. 
An ordoance school of Technology is 
to be erected at the Waleitowu Arsenal 
to handle shop work, chemistry, Mteam 
powei , compressed ail and administra- 
tion courses. 

An ordnance school el application 
will lie erected at Aberdeen for mi titan 
training, advanced mathematics, and 
engineering of all kinds. In order to 
keep the ordnance in close touch with 
the line forces, Intensive courses in 
small arms, artillery, machine gnas 
.mil tanks will be given 

The purpose ot the whole organisa- 
tion will be to enable the country to 
maintain its place among tee leading 
powers by developing inlensives af

on Alumni Hay should lieu in Blind 
that the 1017 tJift Fund is still a uoiny 
concern in spite of I lie war. Although 
every member ol the committee in 
charge was called into the service, it k 
affairs were taken care ot b> the kind- 
ness of Dr. C A. 1'etels '07, who acted 
as custodian for a lund which now 
amounts to over #tt0u, all invested in 
Liberty Bonds. Such a large propor- 
tion of this amount came from men 
over in France that those who served on 
this side can well proflt by their exam- 
ple and make good I lie pledges which 
they gave at Commencement. Pay- 
ments may be mads through Dr. Paten 
or direct to any memliet of the Olfl 
Committee, several ol whom expect to 
be back for Alumni Day. If possible a 
meeting of '17 men will be arranged, to

In "A New Henrietta" 


A lrl-12 victory for the seniors over 
the sophomores, and a H3-1K defeat for 
the juniors, applied by the freshmen, 
were chalked up as the results of the 
interclass basketball games last Wednes- 
day. Slightly outclassed by the seniors, 
the suphomore team was unable to put 
over the winning score. The team work 
of '22 placed their lead beyond the 
junior's reach. 

In the sophomore-senior game, al- 
though many close shots were made, 
only three scored during the first half. 
The seniors obtained two baskets. A 
Nophomore rally at the beginning of 
the last half gave tbem the lead, 
when l.eviiit- scored a long distant 
basket from the eud of the foul ring. 
The fast work of French on the senior 
team overcame the sophomore spurt, 
and by bis three baskets the game waa 
added to thoa« which have been won by 
the seniors. 

The freshmen- junior game waa a clone 
light daring the first half. The bard 
playing of Lltllefle'.d and Taylor formed 
the nucleus of the junior pep. Only a 
three point Usui stood in the faver of 
1P22 at the end of the half. Fast team 
work by the freshmen, of which Walsh 
and Smith were the center, put the 
game on Ice for tbem. I.ittlelield made 
the only two scores for the juniors in 
the last half.

Rev. John Haynes Holmes, from the 
f 'Lurch of the Messiah, New York City, 
spoke In chapel Sunday on "The Dyn- 
amo and the Virgin. " His text was 
suggested by that phrase in the auto- 
biograpy of Henry Adams. It was dur- 
ing a visit to the great International Ex- 
position in Paris in 1900 that Henry 
Adams, under the guidance of Professor 
Langsley, became interested in the ex- 
hibition of dynamos. To him the dyn- 
amo became the symbol of all that was 
internal of the forces latent in the phys- 
ical universe. To him the dynamo 
seemed to be the fulfillment or revela- 
tion of man's mastery of the world. 
From the study of the dynamo be went 
to the great cathedral of Cbartres, 
where he found the image of the Virgin 
revealing the expression of the inward 
power of the soul, love, idealirm, emn- 
tlon — all that is strongest and migbtest 
and leads to highest things. 

Benjamin Kidd, in his "Science of 
Power," said, "The dominant achieve- 
ment of onr age is going into the secret 
places of the Universe and taking pos- 
session of the powers there. But inside 
the soul of man there are other places 
of power." 

Unless the other world ia to be 
mastered, or subdued to the mastery of 
the inward powers, the world will be 
lost. We have come to a critical period, 
when the way leads into two directions 
—one, the road of life, the other, the 
road of death. It baa come to the point 
now that man can control the physical 
energies of the world, can build and di- 
rect the dynamo for the destruction or 
construction of what suits bis fancy or 
will. If man is selfish enough, stupid 
enough, materialistic enough, he can 
destroy all that man baa made through 
the agea. 

The armistice waa just in time to save 
western civilisation from utter destruc- 
tion and disillusionment. "Mod is not 
mocked. Whatsoever a man aoweth, 
that shall he also reap." We are liv- 
ing la a time when the fruit of the seeds 
of materialistic selflahnesa is being 
gathered. We have now to choose be- 
tween the dynamo and the Virgin, 
betwixt darkness and light. It is » 
comforting thought that always there 
have been small groups of men who 
were humble and meek— lowly, pure in 
heart, peace-makers, subduing king- 
doms, stopping the mouths of lions, 
turning the edge* of swords, building 
ihe cathedrals of cbartres. They are 
the ones who shall save all bow. All is 
a problem of love, of faith In love. It 
la love, sad love alone, that never 

The League of Nations la as attempt 
to pal down the dynamo of destruction 
asd bate and to establish the laws of 
lovs and brotherhood, lifting high the 
spirit of confidence In love. Ties shall 
we he able to build a great cathedral of 
a world order of political and industrial 
brotherhood trusting In the common 
•nan who baa come to mean to as what 
the Virgin meant to those few frosting 
men of the past age* Bound together 
la that head of universal love we can 
look forward to brighter future for eom- 
hmm men.

The second legislative committee has 
been un the campus for its annual visit 
during the past week. This time it 
was Ihe-educational committee, depict 
ed somewhat by absence of its members 
who were sick. 

Thursday they toured the campus 
proper and inspected the main build- 
ings. At four o'clock, a special assem- 
bly was called that the committee might 
speak to the student body. Uepreseu- 
tative Watson of the Qlouceeter district, 
made it a point to explain that a limit- 
ed araouut of money was available for 
the college. Senator f'bnrcbill, our 
Amherst Senator, and a professor at 
Amherst College, paid a unique compli- 
ment to the faculty. His impression 
was that our faculty did a sort of miss- 
ionary work and had a missionary /cal 
in teaching, Friday morning the farm 
was inspected.

The attention of every one is again 
called to tbe approaching Farmers' 
week, to be held from March 17-21 in- 
clusive. The extension service extends 
a special invitation to every one to at- 
tend tbe instructive and attractive lec- 
tures to be given. 

Tlic keynote of the whole meeting 
will be post war-problems. In the sea- 
son ahead, tbe task of producing profit- 
ably in the face of the competition of 
more normal supply and demand is a 
seriouB one, and one that must be ad- 
justed to the new conditions which 
have arisen from the war. 

Farmers' week is by no means limited 
in its interest to men. Tbe program is 
so arranged that it contains rich attrac- 
tive features for the hoiuekeepeis and 
tbe woman farmers of the stale. An 
invitation is extended to them to at- 
tend these lectures and demonstrations, 
and take part in tbe discussions Ml an 
equal footing with the men. 

An information bureau will be estab- 
lished in the office of the Extension Ser- 
vice, north wing of .South college, for 
the week. 

Kooms, so far as available, can be had 
in private houses, besides the two small 
hotels of tbe town. 

Meals may be secured at Draper Uall 
on the campus, both in tbe regular din- 
ing hall and tbe cafetarla. Luncheon 
will be served for the ladies In tbe ento- 
mology building from LI to 1 daily. 

Tbe entomology bnlldlng has been 
set aside as a rest room for the ladies, 
while the Social Union room and North 
college are open for both men and 
women any hour of the day. 

Further particulars, including the 
program in detail, may !>*• found in an 
attractive pamphlet belntf issued by the 
Extension department.

Tackhng the Day's Job. 

Every year as the week for final ex- 
animations comes around, a large per. 
eMtag« of the freshmen and sopho- 
mores begin to W let If they are going 

i" flunk over forty per cent of l heir 
terms work. It Is undoubtedly true 
that some men are allowed to enter col- 
lege on eertlieatkHi who have m busi- 
ness here, but by far tbe majority ,,| 
the men should find no great difficulty 
in passing their con rues U they tackle 
them in the right spirit. There are 
some unfair handicaps that the men 
must meet, such m being obliged in » 
one credit laboratory course to take two 
hours of led lire* with four hours each 
week u€ outside work all for tbe one 
credit, but these should merely act as a 
stimulus for the student to show the 
instructor that he has rise ability to 
pass snob a course. 

Hone is to find the real source for 
•emueh flunking and near flunking of 
courses, it will lie found not so much 
in the courses, but more particularly in 
the student. Few students really find 
out what actual study Is. for the ma- 
jority can squeeze by without It, It Is 
the man who ia out for activities, who 
is hard pressed for time, that discovers 
tbe secret of getting the days work 
done in a reasonable length of time. 
He learns, not only how to eoueentraie 
his mind on his work, but also how to 
■ysiematlie It, 

I he aversKe college man will lean 
back in bis swivel desk chair, elevate 
his feet and try to abwrb French or

shoes are tight, take them off, Tbw

Another point where many men fall 
down is oareleseneM in the exarotoa- 
tions. First, listen to whatever sugges- 

Drinking Fountains. 

Can it be possible that in reviewing 
our campus ami buildings, the Commit- 
tees on Agriculture ami Education over- 
looked the absence of drinking foun- 
tains on the east side of the campus ? 
This seems to be the case, fot in ad- 
dressing the student body the members 
of both committees spoke of our won- 
derful equipment. Although the ap- 
propriation calls tor no fountains, they 
are very essential, for on the entire east 
side of the college grounds there is but 
one place a student may obtain a drink, 
and this is not available to co-eds or to 
the stenographers. During the warm 
months of the year we are provided 
with a fountain on the lawn near the 
plant house, but how about the winter 
when this one is shut off? Most of us 
have not yet taken on ihe habit of the 
camel, but we are fast Requiring it for 
reasons of necessity. 

Tbe microbiology building, perhaps, 
offers the worst problem, for with three 
and four hour laboratory periods, ami 
the danger of using a glass or other 
article for drinking, none dare to take a 
chance. In Wilder, French and Clark well as the mathematics build- 
ing, it is not a case of not daring to take 
a chance but an impossibility. The 
•.indents are not tbe only persons who 
are desirous of drinking fountains, hut 
the i-o eda and stenogs. are also stricken 
with tbe drinking habit. The men can 
quench their thirst by drinking from 
tbe lap, and are forced to do this for 
want of something better. If tbe ex- 
pense of Installing these fountains is 
bothering the authorities, we cnuld use 
paper cups, but even these are not fur- 
nished. This would not be highly sat- 
isfactory, for la I ten, i. and wilder 
Halls tbe water can only be obtained in 
the men's laboratories, and again tbe 
women are eliminated. Why shouldn't 
this side of the campus be as well sup- 
plied with drinking fountains aa fs the 
opposite tide, where there are a plenty?

The Freshman Banquet. 

The question of a freshman banquet 
is before the college again. This in- 
stitution was the rami valuable of all 
the das* eouleets. It was the fresh- 
man banquet that drew tbe Classen to- 
gether and made them active and fiKht- 
Ing units. It was the freshman ban- 
quet that made the underclassmen 
realise their duty to their class and to 
their college. The freshman banquet 
was one of the greatest forces for de- 
mocracy that this college ever pos- 
sessed. This college custom was the 
basis, in no small measure, for tbe 
Aggie spirit which, in some respects, hi 
lacking ibis year. 

The college as a whole, and especially 
the two lower classes, need some form 
of in ten-las* con teal that will bring 
them into reallEatlon of the true mean* 
ing of class and college obligations, and 
tbe freshman banquet is the one thing 
that will do if. 

The ha mi it et has always met with 
considerable opposition from the college 
administration because of expense and 
damage to personal property. The lat- 
ter, especially, has beau ova of the

principle arguments against the class 
contest. The expense question was 
regulated in the 1918-19 banquet, ami 
the injury to personal property could be 
eliminated if the contestcnts were pro- 
hibited from entering any buildings 
during the banquet season. 

By all means revive the freshman 
banquet this spring, but regulate it so 
that the expense will be reasonable and 
so that there will be no damage to per- 
sonal property.

Agree to Settle Question at Boston 
Next Saturday. 

Heeeutly a letter wa« received by the 
athletic council from the Dartmouth 
Athletic association cuiieerninjf the un- 
fortunate incident at the H. A. A. meet 
in Boston, in which two fouls were 
committed. The Dartmouth letter 
stated that all the newspaper talk of the 
past week was unotlicial except in that 
the Dartmouth council would collet 
tin- [individual < mps now held l»y their 
linn, and turn them over to Agigie. 
Dartmouth also requested to run Aggie 
next week at Huston, unless the Dart- 
mouth examinations prevented 

Id answer to this offer I'nit. Hicks, 
acting for the Aggie council, replied 
that Aggie did uot feel that she could 
accept the cups on such basis, hut 
would run Dartmouth again for the 
■ u i-s, both t. miiis are to run the same 
men again, and the meet will lie held at 
Boston in the East Armory m-.xt Satur- 
<ia\ . March 15. 


Assisted by the exceptionally good 
music of a local three-piece colored 
orchestra, the second informal of the 
year last Saturday afternoon proved a 
decided success. After five weeks in. 
termisslon. little difficulty was encoun- 
tered in distributing tickets to fifi 
couples. Tat inlerelaas track meet 
furnished eotelainmcut for (hose who 
arrived early. Dancing started at I 
.."d.M-k i us i cad of at 4 in order that the 
Smith contingent might return to their 
homes at an earlier hour. The Hoor 
was in very fair condition aa a result of 
an unusually well attended wit tread 
oa Friday evening, 41 o,;u» a chicken 
croquette dinner was served as an ad- 
ditional feature in place of the usual 
•teak. There will lie no more informal* 
until after the J union I'rom on April II. 



By defeating the freshmen fftoB last 
Wednesday, the seniors clinched the 
title in the iBterelass basketball series. 
The sophomores also won, taking a 
scrappy and roughly played game from 
the juniors. 

In this first game the sophomores 
took the lead at once and were never in 
any danger of being over taken. They 
showed a better defense and handled 
the ball better than the I WO men. The 
latter fought hard, Minefield putting 
up an especially aggressive game, but 
fan sophomore team gradually forged 
ahead, The final won was Si to 11 
Captain Irvine *il was the star of the 
game, getting eight floor baskets and 
five more from the foul line, a total of 
SI points Mcintosh also played a bard 
game and secured three baskets, For 
the juniors I .it tie lie Id and Captain 
Taylor did moat of the scoring, 

In the second game the seniors bad a 
comparatively easy time beating the 
freshmen, French put the upper class- 
men in the lead with m Uin% shot mm 
after the start of the contest, and his 
team mates increased their advantage. 


And when our returned heroes take 
off their uniforms they have so nobly 
honored, here are civilian suits made 
with a military touch that will be in 
keeping with their style and carriage.

Arthur Dumb ex-' 17 Tells 
tie Experiences. 

The Alumni club of WnshtrjRtou, D. 
t held Its annual dinner at Cnshraan's 
cafe, Saturday evening, March »tb. 
ov.rlO members were present. The 
main topic of discussion was the war 
work of the college. Secretary Watts 
represented the oollege and reviewed the 
record which the college baa made in 
the war both wllb respect to the number 
of students and alumni enlisting Id the 
srmy and navy and with respect to ser- 
vim rendered In the state by the Incut ty 
and members of the Jmtensoo Service 
and Kxperlmtnl Station staff. Here* 
ported a total of 11« Aggie men In the 
service, Approximately SQ% of these 
are commissioned officers and approxi- 
mately 80% have nerved ovtrseai. There 
hare been *§ casualties. 

Arthur F. Dunn ex-*17, was also a 
fuoel of the club and gave a brief his- 
tory of the First Diviiion from the time 
it left America in June, 1917, until he 
ly wounded July 18, IBIS. 

The annual High School day will be 
held on May tenth and the plans for 
that event are about completed. The 
tentative program that has been ar- 
ranged is as follows: In the morning 
the sub-freshmen will register and have 
a chance to inspect the college. In the 
afternoon at one o'clock there will be a 
parade and (inspection of the college 
battalion. At one forty-tive an athletic 
meet of track and Held events will be 
held in which members of the various 
high schools and prep schools will have 
a chauce to compete. At four o'clock 
the varsity baseball team will probably 
play on Alumni field, and in case a var- 
sity home game cannot be arranged for 
May tenth, two of the Valley High 
schools will play. Following the base- 
ball game the college will give a bau- 
qnel for the sub-freshmen. At eight 
oVionk (he combined Musical clubs will 
hold a conceit in Stockbridge ball to 
which all are invited, and as soon as the 
concert is concluded, the fraternities 
will bold receptions for the sub-fresh- 
men. The fraternities will care for all 
men who desire to stay In Amherst Sat- 
urday night, 

It is for the interest of the college 
that this High School day be Aggie's 
best High >chool day. All the High 
M-hoohj and Prep schools in the state 
will b« Informed of the event. This 
will be done both by the college, which 
will Mend out notices from time to time, 
and by the undergraduates who, during 
this vacation, will personally advertise 
this event in their own wlionls. There 
■re some schools, however, which are 
not represented on the campus ibis year 
and It will be ImpoMible for a repre- 
sentative of the college to visit them. 
It is therefore the desire of the con. 
mil tee in charge that the Alumni take 
t his matter up and push High School 
day as it has never been poshed before, 
to that the Massachusetts Agricultural 
college with all lis advantages will he 
brought before every High school and 
Prep school student in the state.

liy defeating the juniors Saturday 
afternoon, the seniors finished the inter- 
class series witli a clean slale. The 
freshmen were also victorious in a num- 
eral contest with the sophomores. 

Iti the junior-senior iraine, Thomas 
secured the Brat score on a free try but 
the juniors soon took the lead when 
Graves dropped in the first lloor goal of 
the game and Captain Taylor followed 
with another. Three baskets b] Kan- 
euf, however, airalu put I he seniors on 
the lung end, and the score at the end 
of the half was 11-8 IB their la\or. In 
the second half, French, Faneui, ami 
Sutherland rolled up the senior total to 
27 while the best the juniors could do 
was two tioor baskets by Captain Tayloi 

and l.ittlefield. This left the final score 
27-12. Faneuf S tar r ed toy the winners 
getting all of his team's lloor baskets 
in the lirat half and adding two more 
in the second. French also got three 
lloor goals and Thomas scored live 
points from the foul line. White aud 
(apt Williams put up a scrappy defen- 
sive game. On the junior team Cap- 
tain Taylor and Littlelield hore the 
brunt of the work and did tmmt of the 
scoring. The team as a whole did not 
have the pep and speed of the aeniora.

Activity Dispatchers. 

With vary few exceptions, all rail- 
roads ran their train on a schedule. 
They do this to avoid the ninfortunc of 
two or more trains attempting to run on 
the same track at a given point at the 
same time, tieeaniomilly. hut not very 
often, thin ttapea», and the refilling. 
crash is called a wreck. 

(»n March H, the chance* of the sen- 
iors to take second place In the Inter- 
class track meet were wrecked on 
account of a poof schedule, or rather 
the lack of one. On the above date, In 
addition to the meet, there was an In- 
formal that faacloaied at least AfW 
good men of the class, and a concert by 
the musical clubs at Connecticut which 
took away two of their best distance 
runners. And thu resulted from the 
clash of three trains of thought, three 
distinct activities, 

Therefore, in the future would it not 
he wise lo have an organisation, a cen- 
tral committee, composed of students 
and faculty members, thai would act as 
"train dispatcher"" In this respect and 
thereby avoid similar catastrophes?

upon outside help. Then again, a large 
number of the alumni are tax payers a 
portion of whose tax goes towards the 
maintenance of the college. Why 
should they further pay.' This spirit 
has been especially true with the u. A. 
C. alumni. 

There are countless ways in which 
the alumni can aid the college both 
financially ami practically. Probably 
never before has the college bo Deeded 
political support from the alumni and 
other friends of the college as it dues 
today. There is grave danger that the 
legislature will endeavor to lower the 
standard of the collage. All alumni 
know what that will mean, not only to 
the men in college at the present time. 
bttt also to those who have graduated 
and can boast that they are M. A. ('. 
graduates. Then there is the annual 
scrap for a college appropriation, the 
outcome of which will decide whether 
the college shall advance during the 
next year or not. Whatever helpful 
pressure that can be brought to bear 
upon the members of the legislature is 
greatly needed at the present time. 

The question is often asked "why 
don't the alumni get together and at 
least start a fund for an alumni gymna- 
sium or an alumni library •'" The possi- 
bilities of the state setting aside an 
appropriation for these buildings are 
stil' in the dream stage, The need for 
ihem is becoming more acute every day. 
The college must grow with its student 

The t'oi.l.Koi an has endeavored to 
keep tbe alumni in touch with college 
affairs by printing articles which will 
be of especial interest to them. In 
spite of this, each year a large number 
of name* are dropped from tbe mailing 
list due to the failure of paying up 
back subscriptions. Tbe alumni must 
do (beir part as well as tbe students. A 
stronger organization amongst (be 
alumni is necessary to keep up the old 
Aggie spirit. Lets get together and 
start things going. 


A rare opportunity to obtain an inti- 
mate glimpse of a modern author ami 
playwrights life was given to the mem- 
bers of English 01 last Tuesday even- 
ing when they were entertained by 
Stark Young at his studio in the Nash 
block down town. Mr. Young, at pres- 
ent with the Amherst college faculty 
read two of his own pieces both of 
which have been produced on the tinge, 
"St. Francis" and "Madritta". 'The 
atmosphere of the studio individualisti- 

cally Bohemian with its antique Betting, 
and the cleverness of the reader, made 
a real impression upon his audience.

What About the Alumni F 

There is a certain spirit of 
that seems to predominate among the 
alumniof a state colltiie, towards alma 
mater, that is not so apparent in the 
alumni bodies of privately supported 
.olleges. The reason for this is in- 
doubiedly tbe fael that a stale college 
should be sufnuiently supported by the 
Mate without calling upon the alumni 
ft»f aid. The logic of this seems good, 
for certainly the voting population and 
in* paying Individual* of a state should

agricultural college without calling 

The tennis courts in the rear of (he 
Drill Hall will be renovated this spring 
and It is hoped to bavesome good tennis 
this year. Work on these courts will 
soon be started and It Is hoped to have 
them fine shape to start practice imme- 
diately after the Easter vacation. The 
Interclass meets which have been 
held in former years will also be held 
this year, and a schedule arranged 
later. Interest in tennis baa been 
greatly stimulated by these meet* and 
It is hoped to get some good material in 
this way for future varsity tennis trams, 
To facilitate practice and make more 
courts available than the college now 
baa some of the fraternity courts will 
probably be used. Those In the rear 
of the Alpha Uamma Him, ami Kappa 
Sigma bouses will Ih» available, and It Is 
hoped possibly others can be used. 
Those who wish to enter these meets, 
and have not already done so should 
see Henry Pelrsoo as soon as possible, 
and gire him their names. Tbe serion 
last year was won by the present .'senior 
class but with some apparently very 
good material in the lower classes, it i« 
it is boj>ed I bat some very keen «tni pe- 
tition can be worked up this year. 
Each class should pick out lis available 
material, and get these men out imme- 
diately after the Easter vacation 


Last Races go to Phi Sigma Kappa 
and Kappa Gumma Phi. 

The intei'fraternity season closed lasi 
Friday algbt with victories for Kappa 
Gamma Phi and l'hi Sigma Kappa. 

Alger, Kappa Soma's starter, beat 
West of Kappa Gamma l'hi, (o the cor- 
ner and developed a t hiee yard lead. 
Hlanchard.t lie unannounced dark borse 
of the day, showed great bead work in 
keeping ahead of Dick \mes for two 
laps. But Phil Ames panted Woodward 
on the lirNt lap. Woodward's detective 
shoe, which tripped him, spot led the 
close race. Such a lead was banded to 
Robertson that Carpenter, the Kappa 
Nigma, anchor, could not catch bim. 
The times were, Kappa Gamma Phi 2-18, 
Kappa Sigma 2-24. 

With second place in the league as a 
prize, Phi Sigma Kappa and Alpha 
Gamma Kfao ran a good race. Thy here 
beat Cooper to the bank, Allen gained 
two yards on Hale. Met arty up to ten 
yards over Crawford so that Kaxon 
lomped in twelve yards ahead ol Scott 
in 2.11 g~§.

we find him ruining a near-by dairy, 
underselling the truck-growers, beating 
a beautiful collie dog, and threatening 
one of his neighbors at pistol point.
